I am currently writing a program that will retrieve all transactions and produce the necessary information in a spreadsheet. I'm in the midst of writing a few libraries to connect to various API's at this point, but I am keen to hear what you guys are looking for.

Right now, my first goal is to take a list of public addresses of a coin (any coin as long as all the public addresses belong to that coin), then retrieve all the transactions on the blockchain that pertain to those addresses. For each transaction, I will then attempt to get the following details for each transaction:
Transaction ID, source address, time of transaction, amount of coin exchanged, value of the coin exchanged according to a reputable exchange within an hour of the confirmed exchange.

All this information will be put into a spreadsheet or a CSV file (haven't fully decided how to output it yet).

Not entirely sure if it's all possible, I know it is not possible for some coins due to the nature of the coin (hidden transaction algorithms such as Wraith Protocol).

I'm starting with Dash, Bitcoin, BitcoinCash and possible Ethereum and Litecoin, of course other coins will come in the future. I hope to have this ready prior to the end of June as that's Australia's end of financial year.

And the best part is I will make it open source when it is done, allowing many others to help maintain and upgrade it in the future, adding and removing altcoins as the come and go or upgrading interfaces as necessary.
