Brave Payments Not Listing Visited Websites

It appears none of the sites I visit are being listed on the Brave Payments about:preferences page.
Verified my Advanced Settings
Minimum page time before logging a visit: 5 seconds
Minimum visits for publisher relevancy:5 visits

I have met the minimum requirements to add these sites.
I am turning off the payments for now since I don’t know where the bitcoin will be going

Any thoughts on what is going on?


Can you confirm that your history is being populated with sites as you browse the web?


Hi Sampson,

Yes, my history is being populated with sites as I browse. I do have the
option turned on that clears my history when I close Brave, however I had
this same setup before and it wasn’t an issue.


hi. here’s what you want to do:

first, find the directory where the browser keeps its state. on windows, this should be %userprofile%\AppData\Local\brave … now look for a file called ledger-synopsis.json

copy that file somewhere and open it with notepad. look for the sites you visit in the file and it will tell you (among other things). from my file, i have some lines like this:

      "visits": 21,
      "duration": 1377072,
      "scores": {
        "concave": 51.20354557883523,
        "visits": 21
      "window": [

the file keeps track of the last 30 days, so that this says is that in the last 30 days, i’ve made 21 visits to that site, for a total duration of 1377.072 seconds (about 22 minutes).

see if your sites are there and what kind of values you are seeing.

the one caveat here is that the file is updated periodically when the browser is running, but is written (if there are changes) when the browser quits. good luck!
