It is also because, Uphold & Gemini currently have put operations in Germany on hold. They’re not providing new accounts and other stuff. Also the rewards verification has been paused for many regions, which was more a decision by Brave, later backed by Uphold & Gemini. They’ve paused verification because of regional rules & regulations, frauds and other reasons. Brave has a target to get most workable regions back by the end of the year but I’m not sure about that. Also Brave says Germany is in a weird position right now, but they’ll surely talk to the custodial wallet providers about it.
