Brave Ads not working well with Tor

I operate a Tor middle relay from my home internet, and since I set it up, the reward system doesn’t work. The only ads I see are sponsored images when I open the new tab, however, I don’t get paid for them. I tried reinstalling the browser but it didn’t work. Seems like the issue is with Brave, my IP probably got banned for being a member of the Tor network.

Can someone confirm or deny that Brave Ads block Tor volunteers?
Thank you.

I do not think so. Brave implemented tor in their browser. Why would they block their ads to tor users? Now brave ads don’t work in tor built-in brave. But it does in a normal window.

Maybe your relay traffic is affecting somehow the ads system, although Brave team would have to clarify this.

I am proud to know that you helps to offer a better and more anonymous internet for everyone, i admire you.

@xhGcmw Thanks to the extra information you provided to us, we were able to discover a server-side bug on our end that was handling the traffic coming from Tor middle nodes incorrectly.

This problem should now be resolved. Thanks again for your help and your patience.
