So, according to this article, I cannot verify my wallet, even if i had it done previously? (My region is Poland)
I had to reinstall browser and after that it is not possible for both my devices (Win11, Android13)
Is this going to be fixed, or this will be like that for a while?
Can one bypass this via VPN?

No. Because it goes based on where you submitted your documentation and all to the exchanges. So unless you have a passport and all to match with location you’re wanting to use VPN…

Yes, they are slowly adding countries back. Their goal is to have it done by the end of the year to at least have “most workable countries” added again.

It’s definitely not going to be resolved quick. We’re likely looking at a couple months at least, but we will see.

Correct, because once it disconnected and needed to Verify again, then you’d be unable to reconnect. Brave has disabled the ability to link to Uphold again until they resolve some issues they are working on in regards to regulations, fraud, and their servers.

Btw, if you want to see a lot more details, you may want to check out my Topic, which I’ll link below. I update it regularly as we learn more.
