The number of disposals is not the same as the total number of transactions you have, but refers instead to the number of individual gain/loss transactions and depends on the cost basis method used.

Example

You buy BTC on three occasions:

  • 0.10 BTC bought on January 1st, 2020

  • 0.25 BTC bought on January 15th, 2020

  • 0.35 BTC bought on March 24th, 2020

You then decide to sell all BTC in April the same year:

  • 0.7 BTC sold on April 10th, 2020

This single Sell transaction will now result in three disposals since your purchase history of 0.7 BTC spans from January 1st - March 24th. Using the built-in Cost Analysis tool in Coinpanda shows this in more detail:
