Error: Region not supported Unfortunately, your Brave Rewards cannot be verified because your region is not supported for Brave Rewards verification at this time. What Can be done?

So if that just locks me out of uphold, is there anything else I can do with my brave rewards that doesn’t include gemini or uphold? Can they be withdrawn to the brave wallet?

Not at this time. They were looking at Brave Wallet but then they would have to do KYC/AML and get special licenses. They don’t want to collect all of our data and worry about the cost and annoyance of handling reporting to governments. So that’s on hold for now.

There is a new exchange they are negotiating with, but no details have been made available to everyone. So we have no idea when this will happen or even which countries will be supported.

Anyone affected by these changes just have to be patient and wait until options can be added again. Until then it will store in your browser or you can tip content creators. You just won’t be able to withdraw or transfer BAT anywhere.

Again, nobody knows how long until it all gets handled. Places like France and India are among top priorities right now. Vietnam and Philippines have been unsupported since January. Yet when speaking of which countries will get added, it made it seem like those two are a bigger challenge.

So yeah, world of unknown…no guarantees. Just a matter of be patient and see what happens.

In my case I am in using Brave in United Kingdom which Is one of the allowed countries but I still get this error “Error: region not supported”.
Did this happened to anyone else? thanks

What makes me furious is that now my country is on the not supported list, but due to ducking “issues” all my BATs are stuck in my browsers.
Thanks for nothing i guess…

Is your Gemini or Uphold account registered with a United Kingdom address? That’s generally what it goes by. If you’re Profile is complete on the exchange (gemini/uphold) and you’ve verified at that, then you may want to create a support ticket so Brave can try to look into it with you. However, if your info is not set up for United Kingdom but is instead elsewhere, then you may need to contact the exchange to verify for the UK now instead.

Thanks man. I have created a support thicket because I’m set up with UK address and verified etc. Let’s see what they say!

Same problem is happening with me, I am from India, in my case that is vice versa.
1st it was stopped working in my mobile and now after 3 months it was also stopped working in my Laptop.

Because of that I am unable to send my BAT from Brace account to Uphold.

I don’t know why Brave BAT, Uphold stopped working in India, infect in India there are lots of users whose are using this browser and wallet as compared to other countries.

Very unfortunate part of Brave that the community or the team careless are the restrictions by uphold or Gemini.

Brave is a good project but therein a cheating in the name of restrictions and forcing one to send tip monthly.

How can you avoid members or clients BAT and choose Solana for your own wallet?

Good projects fail over time because of greed. Now, technology is advancing so why force all to use Uphold or Gemini as a way to deny many from these opportunities.

Brave team must rethink to benefit everyone!

The whole community must talk about it. Those benefiting are quite and careless about those who are cheated.

Brave cheats openly.

Why must it be only Uphold or Gemini?

I have same case as yours. Let me know what support team replies to you because they suggested me doing RE KYC with Uphold which I already did and still getting the error.

They said to me that the registration with Uphold is on pause because some issues, I think there is pin post about this too

Pinned in Brave Rewards category.

I’m from the Philippines I also get the error " error region no supported brave " but im verified Gemini wallet.

@flashback check out PSA: Unsupported Region as I have details on everything going on over there. Just a FYI, Philippines and Vietnam are said to be very difficult situations and likely the longest to be able to connect. Most other countries are hoping within the next couple months, give or take. So I’d say unless you get lucky (which is possible), expect it to be more than 3 months before Philippines can connect to Gemini or Uphold again.

From what im reading here, basically there is no point on using Brave Browser if you are not in that tiny scope of countries.

Very shady that just by traveling you will get locked. If you haven’t you will still be able to continue logging in with Uphold or Gemini. Shady.

Same happened to me, i’ve been using Brave from Uruguay (South America) for almost 2 years and i just had a trip to the US. Now that im back in Uruguay im unable to connect. WONDERFUL.

No, not true at all. Just means if you’re not in that tiny scope of countries then you’ll need to be patient until your region is added again. Until then you still earn BAT and all, you just aren’t able to transfer to an exchange where you can convert it to cash.

Who said that? I mean, if you use VPN to spoof your location all the time, it can get you flagged. So when doing that, you should turn off Brave Ads. This is because advertisers pay to target people living in certain regions. When you use VPN or Proxy, it doesn’t properly deliver ads. Many have announced trying to do this to get more ads, such as if they hit a limit in their own country or live in an unsupported region.

If you’re talking about Gemini or Uphold, then just traveling has nothing to do with that. They go by your KYC/AML documentation, such as your passport you provide. If you provide India passport and then move to live the United States, they are going to treat you like you’re in India until you update your documentation to show you’re now in the United States.

That’s because Uruguay is one of the MANY regions that is temporarily not supported. It had nothing to do with you traveling. In the comment above yours, you’ll see where I linked to a topic that explains everything. You may want to click and then read everything…which also means clicking on the dates to see hidden text from older announcements.

Who said im using a VPN? I’ve never used a VPN.

I tried to point out that i had the same experience than Jerebol, which i had no problem before and only now that i recently went to the US for a couple of days and came back to see that i can’t connect to my Uphold account with Brave.

Let’s see how this unfold. I like Brave but if this is the way it goes it’s sad.

That was an example. It wasn’t saying you used a VPN.

Yeah, just was timing. The two weren’t related to each other, though I can see where it can appear that way when unaware of the changes being made. Hopefully I was able to answer you a little better and link you to some sources to see more of what’s happening.

Magesh 26082022 - Yesterday, I am able to connect with my uphold account from INDIA but today its asked for again re-authentication or reconnect to uphold account from brave browser but now i am getting the below message

Unfortunately, your Brave Rewards cannot be verified because your region is not supported for Brave Rewards verification at this time.

Please guide me with answer when this blocker will be lift for me

Please be advsied that at this time India is not on the list of Supported Regions to connected a custodial account (Uphold/Gemini) to Brave Rewards.

Our team is evaluating each region including India for reestablishing connection. At this time there is no estimated timeline or deadline when they will return to the list.
We do ask for your patience in the meantime and continue to use Brave Rewards, claim your BAT and if you would like, tip your favorite Creators.
