Contribution directed to wrong person

Tried sending some of my Rewards earnings to the Gemini creator wallet I have set up by tipping myself but it says that the recipient is “redditor_1234 on Reddit”. It’s clearly not me but under that it shows my reddit username. Even attempting to tip others on Reddit, the same thing shows up.

Gemini wallet is verified

What date did you verify your wallet?
May 22, 2021

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)?

A quick note, I would not tip yourself, because it can flag a warning in the fraud detection system and stop you from getting paid for ads anymore at all. Just be careful.


I was concerned about this as well but on Reddit, bat-chriscat replied to a post to confirm that it’s fine as long as it isn’t a token grant.

Rules against self-tipping only apply to our promotional BAT token grants. You are allowed to tip anyone (including yourself) with BAT that you earn via Brave Ads, or BAT that you self-fund with your own money.
