I stopped receiving BAT back in July (my last payout was June, no issues from when I started in March), despite viewing ads and sponsored backgrounds. My July payout also didn’t go through, and nothing has registered since.
I have set my ads to maximum, turned them off and on, turned auto-contribute off, and tested that Brave notifications work. Ads do not show, and I never earn from sponsored backgrounds.
Further, I had ~18 BAT when I connected to Gemini, which was verified on Sept 3rd. I received my bonus 5 BAT for joining in late October but my balance never made it.
I have never used a VPN, and I am in Australia which is a supported region. My windows laptop has no issues viewing ads and earning, but it is old and I never use it.
I am on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, and have never had a problem until ~July.
Brave is kept up to date, currently running [Version 1.31.87 Chromium: 95.0.4638.54 (Official Build) (64-bit)
This seems to be an issue many people are having.
