Creators Account will get suspended If I tip my self?

I’m self tipping since I have more than 4 devices/browsers so I can get bats through creators account but somewhere I heard, it could lead your creators account to suspension!!

Is it true?

I can’t make two uphold accounts because of few reasons that’s why I have been tipping myself!

Please answer my question and don’t suspend my creators account I’m just adding the information for the better understanding of my question.


Reasons of doing self-tipping

  • When uphold connection limit is crossed (4 devices per uphold account)
  • Uphold is connected but lost the browser due to system format or unexpected accidents.

Need answers please!

@steeven @Matches

Sorry for the mention but it has been days and I see you guys on other threads so I thought mine must be lost somewhere in the threads ocean!

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.

I think this could give you answers :

  1. 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.

  2. We suspend accounts that are found to be in violation of our Terms of Service or Grant Tipping Guidelines, here:

  3. If you search on 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.

Thanks for the response @ambrocioisaias2808 @ShineWhine

Still I would love to hear few words from the staff team regarding my question because that reddit post was posted a year ago!

Don’t believe anything you read. They will ban you, you will make an appeal which will be answered with an automatic response that will reject your appeal.

After that you will email brave suspension, and after about 20 days if lucky, usualñy 30+ days you will get an answer from support, banning you either way.

So no, do not tip yourself.

Happened to friends with 100 bats in 1 month tipped to themselves, happened to me before, and many more users.
