If you’re looking for a guide on connecting your Trust wallet to our platform, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, we’ll go over the direct connections, but we also support manual CSV imports using our template.
Basic Overview On Connecting Your Trust Wallet
Connecting your Trust wallet to our platform might be a little confusing if you don’t know what you are doing. So because of this, we created this article to help teach you about how it works.
You may have used the Trust wallet because it can store different blockchains all in the same place. While this is true, it doesn’t mean they all use the same wallet address. To import all your transactions from your Trust wallet into ACCOINTING.com, you must first get all your wallet addresses and public (XPUB) keys.
We can only import some blockchains by using their XPUB key as opposed to their wallet address. These chains include the following;
The Trust wallet provides support for some more blockchains that use XPUB keys, but we might not yet support them on our platform.
As a general rule, if the chain has an XPUB key, use that key instead of the wallet address. So if you use any of the coins above, open your Trust wallet and continue on to the section titled “Getting Your Public Keys”. For any other blockchains you want to add, continue on to the section titled “Getting Your Wallet Addresses”.
Getting Your Public Keys From Your Trust Wallet
The video below provides a quick run-through of this process.
If you would rather go through this process step-by-step, the following five steps are all it takes to get your XPUB keys.
- Navigate to the “Settings” page on the right side of the bottom tab bar.
- Then, click on “Wallets”
- Now, click on the Info Sign of your Wallet
- Click on “Export Account Public Keys”
- Select and Copy the Public Key that you need depending on what coins you want to import
Once you have your public keys, you can continue on to entering them into our platform.
Getting Your Wallet Addresses From Your Trust Wallet
To get the wallet addresses for your different blockchains, follow these three simple steps.
- First, click on the chain you would like to get the address for.
- Next, click on “Receive”.
- Finally, click on “Copy” to copy your wallet address.
Now that you have your address copied to the clipboard, continue on to the next section to learn how to enter it into our platform.
Entering Your Keys/Addresses Into Our Platform
Once you have the XPUB keys and/or wallet addresses from your Trust wallet, you’re ready to connect them to our platform. To do so, go to our website or open the ACCOINTING mobile app and create a new wallet.
You have two different options when creating that new wallet. The first option is to use the generic blockchain wallet for each chain you want to add. The second option is to create a new “Trust” wallet, which lets you connect to multiple chains without adding multiple wallets.
The mobile version of our app only lets you connect a single chain to a new Trust wallet. Therefore, to add multiple chains to the wallet, you must use the desktop browser app.
You may choose whichever option you like, but for this tutorial, we’ll use the Trust wallet import via our desktop web app. The following shows the steps needed to complete the process.
- Enter the coin type and address/key into the provided fields
- Add additional coins for each address in your trust wallet
- After adding all the coins, save the connection to finish connecting your Trust wallet.
We may not provide direct connection support for every coin listed in your Trust wallet. If you do not see a coin listed in the “Choose Currency” section that you need, try searching for that coin in our supported wallets to make a general blockchain wallet instead. If you do not see it listed in either place, you can vote/request for it to be added here.
Now that you’ve finished connecting your trust wallet to our platform, you can now enjoy all the benefits of doing so. Some of these benefits include;
- automatically importing existing and future transactions,
- tracking the value of the coins held in your wallet,
- tracking your overall profit and loss,
- generating a tax report which includes those transactions.
