Gemini currently not available in your region error!

Briefly describe your issue: Gemini currently not available in your region error, worked before on another computer with the same Brave version on Ubuntu

What Operating System and Brave version are you using? (Menu --> About Brave) Ubuntu 22.04.3, Brave Version 1.57.62 Chromium: 116.0.5845.180 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Who is your verified custodian? Gemini

Are you in a supported region? Yes in the United States and selected that.

I got a new computer and installed the latest version of Brave and it says that Gemini is not supported in my region, even though I’m located in the United States

So you have the Gemini button greyed out on the brave rewards page or is it saying region unsupported after trying to connect?

Anyways, Gemini is down for new connections. It’s working for existing users already connected to gemini.

I’ve used Brave for years but I never tried the crypto… For the first time I decided to give it a try… but I can’t connect Gemini. It says it’s not available in my region. I tried using a VPN to to change my region to match my home of record. No luck. I already have a fully function Gemini account. Would love to know when this is fixed.

can’t be fixed. Supported regions for connecting to Brave rewards for gemini are different than the ones which are supported by Gemini.

Yeah, VPN won’t do it. It’s going to go based on what country you choose in Rewards and your passport that matches that country. Both are necessary.

In terms of Gemini for now though, the integration was completely down for a bit. They were able to get it restored for those who were already connected. Unfortunately no new connections can be made at this time. I’m not quite sure when or if that will change. I’m not really getting any updates with ETAs for it, just know that they are in talks with Gemini and trying to get it figured out.
