I can confirm for those waiting that I received my Browser Wallet payout around noontime today, so that proves payments are still processing. Like many people, my payout date had switched to Sept. 5 on the Rewards screen, yet I still got it today, 8/8.
As for Uphold, I personally suspect the relationship may be fracturing. While I haven’t read anything disparaging from Brave Developers, many community members have complained for some time about Uphold. My personal experience has been fine thus far, but I have concerns for the community. We are not privy to the unique challenges of a young custodial crypto exchange, or how it interacts with Brave & BAT and their complexities. However, I think these regular monthly issues are damaging the platform. And starting this month it seems there is a BAT Network Fee of 1 BAT to withdraw, opposed to the waived fee in previous months. While that is still relatively inexpensive, it indicates to me that Uphold may not necessarily be profiting from its partnership with Brave, or that the exclusivity of the Wallets is now in question. Especially since the launch of the Binance gadget on the Browser’s Desktop Landing Page. The silence says a lot.
