How come Gemini is supported by my country but BAT rewards is not?

Hi, I just got my account verified on Gemini, but when I try to link it to my BAT rewards it says “Region not supported”. This is very sus as Gemini clearly has no problems receiving BAT and paying me out in cash.

Your country is currently not supported to receive Brave rewards. It’s not because of Gemini, but because of the legal implications Brave has to fulfil in each country when distributing rewards.
Brave is working to bring most countries back. But it may take some time.
