Brave rewards - Bulgaria

Briefly describe your issue:
I am in Bulgaria and ads are appearing to my account. However, I recently changed my Gemini password, and now Brave tells me that Gemini is not supported. Also, Uphold does not support Bulgaria. So what happens now? We can’t use any of the available services and we are stuck?

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?
Windows 10 - Version 1.39.111 Chromium: 102.0.5005.61 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)

What date did you verify your wallet?

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)

Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?

Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?

Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to Uphold??

Okay, so yes, Gemini recently restricted accounts to people only in certain regions. To see which are accepted, you can visit NOTICE: New region restrictions on verifying Brave Rewards with Gemini

If you’re unable to use Gemini or Uphold due to their restrictions, then that just means you won’t be able to convert BAT into money at this time. You will still be able to see Brave Ads if you want to keep it active and will still earn BAT. However, the BAT you earn will only be able to be stored in your browser and the only way you can use it will be to tip Verified Creators.

If you have further questions on where your BAT is stored or what to do in the meanwhile, I’ll advise you to check out the FAQ at PSA: User FAQ - Support & Answers as it has a lot of that information for you.
