Well… hope they answer, they are the proper ones to respond.
But in the mean time.
AFAIK, yes, it could lead in to suspension or revision, they don’t recommended doing it.
Don’t get it wrong but this measure is taken to avoid fraud if im not mistaking.
In any case, i have seen threads where they say it’s ok if are small earnings like those from rewards. But that was a long time ago when uphold still was not available for mobile, and even then they recommended not to do it and wait.
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.
If you search on community.brave.com or spend time on our Telegram, you will see the extent to which we enforce these rules in order to protect genuine users and creators. In other words, the way we deal with this kind of fraud is by enforcing our ToS and grant tipping guidelines, and suspending those who abuse publisher accounts solely to withdraw BAT grants—which are meant for tipping real content creators—to themselves, especially if they use coordinated or automated methods.

It seems like I should be fine because I have not faced any issue for the past months tipping my self and according that reddit post the bats are totally mine although I’m not sure what do they mean by Promotional Bat grants (let me know if anyone knows what that is) but I’m pretty sure the bats I’m tipping are earned via brave ads.
I know they don’t allow self tip because they count it as fraudulent activity!
But they should give more options than Uphold.
The only reason we self tip is because of uphold. Uphold only has 4 slots and neither those can be removed/disconnected. We can’t do anything In case of device change or unexpected accident, nor they have any option to backup brave wallet! We then have no option left other than self tip.
I ask them to remove my devices from uphold, since I have new computer with new devices. But they can’t (or that is what they say) So I selftipped and got all my bats banned. Asked them to remove ban, and seems I am still fraudulent.
So yes, its seems its a dam SC AM once you get some good volume on bats.
