since my post has been set so that it can only be accessed via directlink, I would like to open a new one to show what happens when you own too many BATs and donate them. Brave found a very simple way to expropriate me.
It all started when I used the browser for over 3 years and in the meantime I accumulated 350 BATs on my PC Wallet. I then registered on Uphold and tried to verify my ID documents. They are still on pending to this day. I had then in over a year period several tickets opened at Uphold, which were never answered or only after a few weeks, where I was told that a “specialist” will take care of it. I was always put off. So, since I couldn’t pay out through the traditional way, I decided to do it through a friend who was successfully registered with Uphold. He opened a Brave Creators account and I donated all my money to him. That’s perfectly legal, after all. Now the funny thing: my friend’s account was frozen and he was supposed to provide a statement where he got the money. He provided a statement and received no feedback for 2 weeks.
I then posted here in the forum and Steeven contacted me. I gave him all the information and a few hours later after he read the message, my friend got a mail from Brave Creators that his account was banned and he had violated the usage lines - where exactly the usage line was violated was not said.
The problem is that the money is now permanently blocked and Brave has managed to expropriate all my money. I knew from the beginning that there were reasons why several users with over $100 couldn’t get their money. So much for the money belonging to one.
But I actually have to say, chapeu. If you just lock your account, then he himself can’t get to the money, that’s why you can pay it to yourself and since I donated it. I have no right to it. Very smart of Brave, but be warned. I personally would not build a business based on BAT income.
