Error: region not supported: Africa

Hi there.
Been using brave link to uphold for the past year.
Everything has been working fine.
I have heard that there was an Brave update, now Africa is not supported.
I thought it was from uphold side but after contacting them was inform it was from Brave side.

Please can you tell me if this will be rectified.

Look here for list of currently supported regions. More places are being added but this is not a quick thing that can be implemented easily. You are still getting BAT in your browser but can not store that in a custodial wallet. I would strongly suggest that you back up your Brave Software folder (not sure where it is on Windows) so that if anything did happen and you had to reinstall Brave you just copy the saved folder to where the new installation is and you will have your BAT there.

Yes, eventually. No timeline known for sure. Their goal is to restore by the end of the year, but that’s just if things go well. We’re already seeing some delays, but have our fingers crossed.

Correct, it’s always been said here on Brave that it was Brave’s decision. There were a lot of issues with government regulations, fraud, and compliance. Brave had been getting some pushback from governments and there are new laws that are going in place around the world. Due to all of this, Brave decided to narrow down the list of supported regions while they work on all of this.

I try to post any updates on this as we learn more over on my topic at PSA: Unsupported Region if you want to check in on it every once in a while. I should actually be posting another update tonight within the next 24 hours.

Thanks so much for the reply.
I will keep updated with the post.
