Getting "Region not supported" in Germany

I can not connect my existing account from Uphold. I just read that simply no new accounts can be created. (In Germany)

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?

Windows 10 x64

Version 1.44.108 Chromium: 106.0.5249.103 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit)

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)

No (cant connect) getting Region not supported.

What date did you verify your wallet?

Verified on 12/27/2020

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?


Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)


Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?


Have you fully completed Uphold’s CDD requirements?


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.

You can actually get more updates about regional support for verification here.
