"Brave Rewards is not available in your region"

Hello. Today, when I launched the Brave browser, the browser notified me that the Brave Rewards service is not available in my region. For detailed information, I visited the site issued by the browser, where only 4 regions were indicated where the Brave Rewards service is not available, namely Iran, Syria, North Korea and Cuba. I LIVE IN AZERBAIJAN! And when specifying the region when installing the browser, I indicated exactly my region. Please tell me why this happened? If Azerbaijan, like the above countries, can no longer receive rewards for viewing ads, then add my region to this list too. Interestingly, the Brave browser is also installed on my phone and everything works there.


Same issue in Estonia. https://brave.com/transparency/ Shows both Estonia and Azerbaijan as supported. Looks like something broke with the latest browser update


Same issue in Russia, idk whats wrong.

Hi all, I have sent a DM to each of you individually.

when will the January creator payments take place sir

Hi ,same issue in Ireland

I have the same problem.

Could you further elaborate your issue? Ireland is in a supported region to receive Brave Rewards and connect a custodial account. https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/6539887971469

Could you clarify which region you are based in and if you are seeing a message that indicates you are unable to use Brave Rewards?

Armenia. The message says that Brave Rewards is not available in my region.

yes, yesterday everything was fine, but today i have a massege :‘Brave Rewards is not available’

January payments will go through January, sir. Could you fly away from this topic sir? As you can see, the discussion here is quite different, sir.

Hello. May I ask for your telegram?! I have a question of a personal nature, it will not be possible to discuss it here.

same issue with Turkey region. It was all good yesterday but now rewards are not available from PC (phone ones are still fine)

Hello! I have same problem. And I saw the list of Unsupported Regions: North Korea, Cuba, Syria, Iran and Russia. But I’m in Ukraine, Mykolaivska oblast. Can you explain the reason? Or Brave emloyee consider my region as russia? I think, I deserve some explenations.

I think in this way the developers came up with a way to get rid of unnecessary thoughts such as how to withdraw earned coins to people who live in countries where custodial wallets do not work. What’s the point of having these coins in your browser?! Yesterday Russia was not on the list of unsupported countries, today the list has changed and I think this is not yet a complete list. Instead of adding a wallet service that would support all countries of the world, the developers came up with a method that is beneficial to privileged countries.

Soon Ukraine and Azerbaijan will be on this list, and other countries, too, in which Gemini and Uphold support wallets do not provide services. Maybe I’m wrong, this is just my guess.

Except we’re having this issue in countries that ARE supported by Uphold (Estonia in my instance), so it’s way more likely that it’s just a bug in the newest version of the browser

I have this problem in Belarus

same problem, Slovakia. Thinking about moving back to Chrome, no need to use Brave anymore


Do it as soon as possible
