I want to connect to binance or Exodus

Is Brave planning to add more custodial account services? Please add Binance. Binance had no problem verifying my account through KYC but Uphold blacklisted me. Plus, many people are having trouble with Uphold, so it’s clearly not very reliable. I have balance trapped in my account since day 1.

No, not really. I mean, they have always said will be open to it but I don’t think that’s the direction Brave is going.

Well, they did just plead guilty to criminal offenses, some of which is exactly what you are pointing out here. They didn’t properly do KYC/AML and all, in addition to other issues.

I have had no issues. Uphold is one of the few exchanges that IS NOT in trouble.

Uphold is strict because they are making sure not to get in trouble with governments.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Do you think Brave will ever be open to using non-custodial wallets (like Exodus) to allow for withdrawal? I really hope there’s something that can be done to get my BAT

Yes. This is actually the direction they have been hinting at. We are waiting for specific details and an ETA, but Brendan Eich, Luke Mulks, and others at Brave have said they are in the midst of going to on chain payments. This would allow us to receive payments directly to Brave Wallet and all.

At one point I heard Solana, at another was talk of L2, etc. I have no idea what chain/network (my terminology sucks) they’ll be using or anything. And when asked if KYC/AML would be required, they said it wouldn’t be. Well, at least not to receive BAT. Obviously when it comes time for us to convert to fiat, we may have to go through an exchange that will do KYC/AML or whatever.

Up to this point, they had been making sure everything was legal and complied with all regulations. Essentially Brave has always wanted to make sure they weren’t going to be hit with any violations of FINCEN and other governments laws/regulations, which is why they have always gone the extra lengths that they have. But legal teams are saying changes can be made and that’s the direction they are moving.
