In the ever-evolving landscape of digital asset accounting and tax services, the need for precision in categorizing on-chain transactions has never been more critical. Accounting professionals, such as OnChain Accounting, whether catering to individuals investing in cryptocurrencies or firms managing digital assets, are faced with the challenge of translating raw on-chain transaction data into actionable insights for comprehensive financial reporting. This is precisely where Merlin steps in, not merely as a data provider but as an interpretation and intelligence layer.
Navigating the Complexities of On-Chain Transactions
The landscape of on-chain transactions is vast and intricate, with raw data streaming from a multitude of activities. This data extends beyond the realm of DeFi, encompassing a rich array of transactions such as Crypto Payments (including Salaries, Vesting, ICO/IDO), NFT minting & sales, engagements within Gaming & Virtual Real Estate Worlds, DAO Governance, RWA / Real Estate Tokenization, and more. As abundant as this data is, the challenge lies not only in its sheer volume but in its diversity and complexity.
Deciphering the details of these transactions requires a level of analysis that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of accounting. While blockchain explorer solutions provide a first-hand look at raw data, this data often lacks the crucial context that is vital for comprehensive understanding.
Accounting professionals are faced not only with the task of capturing the essence of these transactions but also with the need to decode their implications for precise reporting, financial statements, tax compliance, and strategic decision-making.
It is in this nuanced analysis that the true value of on-chain transaction data emerges — not just as a ledger of activities, but as a narrative that guides the future of financial strategy and decision-making.
Merlin’s Approach to Understanding On-Chain Transactions
Merlin, as an expert in wallet on-chain transaction categorization and institutional-grade DeFi performance analytics, goes beyond the surface of raw on-chain data.
With an extensive dataset processed through ML algorithms —over 500 million across 20+ chains—, Merlin not only reads raw on-chain data but interprets and intelligently classifies to provide curated, relevant transactional information, covering critical elements such as:
- Initiator and Beneficiary: Tracking movements from wallet to wallet, wallet to smart contract, but also wallet to wallet within the same portfolio.
- Asset Movements: Detailing single or multiple asset movements, including token types and valuations.
- Financial Activities: Classifying actions like token transfers (including bridging, wrapping), NFT minting/sales, all types of DeFi investments (Liquidity Pools, Staking, Farming, Lending & Borrowing, to name a few), and many more to come.
- Transaction Fees: Offering a breakdown of fees and their impact on transactions.
- P&L for DeFi Investments: Providing a nuanced view of profits and losses, considering various factors such as price fluctuations, impermanent loss and transaction fees.

For firms engaged in fund administration, Merlin’s data becomes a valuable asset. The ability to track on-chain activities comprehensively, with unparalleled performance insights across DeFi activities, allows for more strategic decision-making regarding fund allocations, risk management, and compliance reporting.
