Brave Rewards Gemini to Uphold

Briefly describe your issue:
I used to get Brave rewards in Gemini, but I closed that account a year ago. Now I have Uphold, but for some reason, my Brave browser on this laptop only shows Gemini as an option. I’ve been earning rewards for months and don’t want to reset Brave Rewards because I’m worried about losing my past earnings. Can you help me switch to Uphold?

What Operating System and Brave version are you using? (Menu --> About Brave)

Version 1.66.110 Chromium: 125.0.6422.60 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Who is your verified custodian? (Uphold/Gemini/bitFlyer)
None, want to switch

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

Yes, South Africa

@GiftMawela you have no earnings to lose from resetting. If it was paid out to Gemini, then your BAT is in Gemini. If you haven’t been connected to Gemini or any custodial account, then you have no BAT that you have earned and kept.

To circle back on this, one of two things happened. Either your browser stayed connected to Gemini on the back end and payments were being sent to Gemini, despite your account being closed, and this means you actually got nothing.

And if not connected on the back end, then it means you have not been connected to anyone and therefore would be unable to earn. Custodial accounts (like Uphold or Gemini) have been required to earn BAT for a while now. And as of October 2023, vBAT (that’s any BAT earned without being connected to a custodial account from prior years) was sunsetted. Meaning it no longer can be used…essentially to say it does not exist.

Had no idea… Thank you so much
