I’m using PP to track my crypto holdings, alongside Blockfolio. I’m having trouble wrapping my head around „Purchase Value,“ as the numbers I’m getting don’t seem to make sense - nor do they match Blockfolio. Consider a security with:
My cost was 50-25.02+200-149.68=$75.3. That’s how much my current holdings cost me in my own, real, original dollars invested - and it’s exactly what Blockfolio lists as „net cost“ (sum of all costs from purchases - sum of all proceeds from sells). Profit/loss is then Market Value - Net Cost, and Avg Net Cost = Net Cost / Holdings. All very straightforward & makes sense to me.
However, in PP’s Statement of Assets, „Purchase Value“ is 70.08 & Purchase Value (MA) is 70.04. I find these numbers much less intuitive, and as far as I can tell, don’t really provide any way to tell „how much of my original money is currently invested“ (?). The corresponding Purchase Price and Profit/Loss don’t seem logical to me either. For example, although I know I paid $75.3 out of my own money (per above), if today’s market value were 70.08, PP would show $0 profit/loss. It seems to me that that’s actually a ~$5 loss, since I put in $~75 and now it’s worth ~$70.
Am I missing something here?
And more importantly: is there some way to view NET COST, AVG NET COST, and PROFIT/LOSS as calculated by Blockfolio - so I can keep the two accounting methods coherent, & also because it just seems a lot easier to understand that way?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
