I setup Brave in 2021 with the US as my Rewards region (I am based in the UK). I did this under the assumption that US ads would more prevalent than European ads and therefore would make more in vBAT rewards. I didn’t think twice about this. After all I was using Brave the privacy browser.
I have built around 50 BAT. Not much, I know. But I feel I have put in some work to get here.
After connecting to Uphold, I can’t withdrawn my BAT as there is a country mismatch. I’m given the only option of resetting Brave and losing my BAT.
This seems pretty unfair. Like many of us I’ve spent hours clicking and reading ads, and now I can’t claim my rewards because I committed the heinous crime of watching ads intended for a different country.
Is there any way to rescue my BAT without resetting Brave and the ad region?
