How can I view the full transaction history or order history? Recent activity does not show all orders. I need the information for the IRS.

No one has an answer? Something so simple should be possible without any problems.

Openledger. info has the following info:

"We are not able to show you all the information about your transaction history - only the latest 100.
Check this link https://github.com/openledger/openledger_nodejs_api to find out full history."

I'm not an expert. How does it work with nodejs_api? Is there a comprehensible guide for laymen somewhere? I just want to download the complete transaction history. I need this urgently!

This is one of the major shortcomings of BTS / DEX right now :( Wonder if it is being addressed in the GUI improvements going on.  :o

There is no simple way to access/see entire history. You have to understand that in case of larger volume of trading that file would be making half of UI unresponsive. Please use API Docs from official Bitshares or reach someone who can be trusted on your side to do it for you (it will request your encrypted keys in order for your history to be generated/accessed ).

You can always submit to IRS official documentation and say the truth "They don't support instant export of financial books, i have to pay and wait for the process of generating such reports", as any other reasonable person would do in your case.

No! Do not hand over your keys to anyone!

You can easily access the entire history of your own account(s) by running a full node of your own. Your private keys are not required.

1) Find a friend, wife, sister, cousin who is a bit technical and ever used Linux or Mac and you are 40% good to go.
2) You are telling someone non technical to DEPLOY A FULL NODE ON HIS OWN AND DO TRANSACTION HISTORY ? You are having a piss or a blast with reason in your head ?

My place of residence is not in the USA. By IRS, I meant "tax authorities" in my country. But maybe I can do the same thing.

I am a little bit technical. I have also used Ubuntu before. Besides, I'm good at reading myself in. But I need a good detailed guide for this exact problem. However, my basic knowledge is limited. Of course, I don't want to study for days just to get a simple export. The trustworthy people around me have little technical understanding.

Despite technical hurdles, OpenLedger should still simplify this process for laymen. Taxes affect most people and sooner or later most of them will have to deal with the subject. I think such problems limit the growth of OpenLedger and bitshares.

Can someone provide a detailed guide that allows technically average informed people to get this export done?

Maybe [member=21903]roadscape[/member] could add this feature on list of APIs in CRYPTOFRESH or any other blockchain explorer being developed in the background.

It may be very difficult for one company to provide a tax service for every possible jurisdiction. However, export of history based on simple filters should be provided as a built into client feature or as a stand alone tool. This is a high demand feature. 100 records is not enough to prepare a tax form.

Make it public, many people would be interested to know this.

Step 1.

Deploy Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 Server 64bit on your node/server. You can download torrent here http://releases.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-16.04.3-server-amd64.iso.torrent

I strongly suggest torrent download instead of regular one, since ubuntu download servers are having limit on bandwidth.

Make sure there is minimum 60GB available on SSD and 3GB of ram minimum for the instance itself.

SSD needs to be with higher IOPS. (Input/Output-Write/Read Per Second)

Ubuntu should be deployed with following partition structure of 60GB.

47GB /root/
12GB swap
1GB split for
/boot/
Primary bootable partition

I prefer Primary Disks instead of Logical (LVM) ones.

If you are doing manual setup, set auto updates to off (no updates).

Step 2.

After installation and setup is done, install following packages with apt-get and optimize the system in order to set the best performance for the swap:

a) sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get install htop iotop automake autoconf cmake git libboost-all-dev libssl-dev g++ bzip2:i386

b) sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=20
     To add this to default so you don't get screwed on each reboot, you have to add one line to the following file using editor
     sudo vi /etc/sysctl.conf

add at the very bottom (new, last line) of the file:
      vm.swappiness=20

save the file and reboot the system.

Step 3.

Now when you are all tidy and super balanced for this to be very fast you proceed on your ubuntu terminal to the step of deploying Bitshares to your instance:

at the home login of your user ( /home/user/ ) first place after user login execute this commands.

git clone https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core.git
cd bitshares-core
git submodule update --init --recursive
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .
make

Once the process is done, let me know here, i'll guide you to initialization and config check before the node sync/rebuild. I will also check our latest compressed block replicate is valid or not in the meantime, so you don't have to sync but just rebuild from downloaded file.

Cheers,

Luci.

2) You are telling someone non technical to DEPLOY A FULL NODE ON HIS OWN AND DO TRANSACTION HISTORY ? You are having a piss or a blast with reason in your head ?

Do you always abuse people who merely set a wrong (and dangerously so) answer from you straight?

I don't abuse. :) You are just too emotional about it. This is all just business support and opinions. I didn't mean to be rude, but I did obviously. Please accept my sincere apology.

Many thanks,

Luci
