It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in the community but there are many reasons.
One of them is my total disapproval of Uphold service, I find that service to be utterly poor and the support service is one of the worst in the world.
Some time ago I asked to unblock the two-factor authentication problem as I had changed my smartphone and I couldn’t synchronize Google Authenticator from the old device to the new one.
They told me that it was not possible to solve the problem even by sending my identity documents.
So it is clear that a question arises … but how can you entrust your earnings to such exchanges?
On Coinbase I had no problems recovering my account and I did it by simply sending my ID documents.
I am totally unhappy that the Brave team has not made available other alternative services such as Coinbase, Binance or maybe Exodus.
I am continuing to use Brave due to the high level of security and all the valuable behind the scenes work.
But for the rest there is still a lot to work, I have some BAT still stored in my Brave browser but I’m not cashing them yet just to see if things evolve in a positive way.
In fact, I would like to have the right to decide where to send my BAT without being tied to any of the exchanges you impose.
It takes two to tango. If enough Coinbase/Binance/Exodus users would keep asking them to partner with Brave, something could probably happen.
So, based on your answer, should I dance the “Tango” by going around various exchanges to annoy him and propose to collaborate with Brave browser?
If I was paid as a regular employee or contributor to the Brave team I might as well do that.
It takes time and effort to do this, a few BATs are not enough to repay my effort.
Therefore it is also appropriate to respect those who dedicate time, energy and resources to this work.
I hope I have been clear enough.
Uphold sucks. Gemini even more. But these are the ones who accepted to partner with Brave.
Yes, Coinbase and Binance are a reference. But they are also too big. They do not do any partnership if they do not get a relevant benefit. Brave is too small for them.
The only way, in my opinion, is to go DeFi. But to do that Brave needs to find a legal way to do it, because Brave is a company under US law.
Sure, I can understand.
But at least supporting wallets like Exodus and the like could be done in my opinion, so then we manage our earned BAT from there.
We should seriously think about making life easier for users. So it doesn’t make any sense.
