I use my fiat currency to invest into some coins and thus, the trade tab is empty. Any way to adapt this for the information under the section? This looks like this:

Hello Dustin,
I am wondering if you can give me a tip how to fix this error:
Error: Invalid base64-encoded string: number of data characters (85) cannot be 1 more than a multiple of 4

It's happening when I try to execute the code.

Thanks Dustin for the good work!

I have added a few extra features (sorry for the sloppy code. Python is not my native language) here:

  • Original script only fetched the previous 50 trades at most. This now loops through all trades in history (that kraken exposes)
  • Added some basic api limiting to adhere to krakens limits (seemed like it was actually not necessary in my case. Not sure why)
  • Prints the received trades and total trade count
  • Changed from floats to decimals to avoid monetary rounding errors
  • Added a few more columns to output: TOTAL VOL, TOTAL COST, TOTAL FEES, MIN PRICE and MAX PRICE

@DVN237294 Thanks for the collaboration!

I want to note that I no longer use this script since there are services online that do this for free. I'm using Koinly currently, but there are other options too.
