Briefly describe your issue:
Brave is stating that the country I am in (Bermuda) has no custodian wallets available.
This is incorrect! Uphold has always had support for Bermuda. I was able to link my verified Uphold wallet to Brave initially and have been receiving rewards since July of 2021. I received rewards for Aug 4 2023.
**What Operating System and Brave v 1.56.20
Is your Brave Rewards Profile currently verified? (yes/no)
Yes - since 2019
What date did you connect a your Brave Rewards Profile?
Years ago - Have been receiving rewards since July 2021.
Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?
Yes - even last month
Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)
Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?
This region list is incorrect!!!
Have you fully completed Uphold’s CDD requirements?
Then during the whole Covid ordeal and then the craziness with FTX and the crypto world, both Gemini and Uphold began to restrict many countries on their own platform. They also doubled down and yanked support to Brave. Support to countries have been getting added little by little.
So while you might be able to have a Gemini or Uphold account, that doesn’t mean that Uphold or Gemini are allowing new connections from Brave.
The key phrase there is “new connections.” Anyone who had their existing browser (Rewards profile) connected are able to keep receiving payments. However, that doesn’t mean the region is supported for everyone. And if you go to create a new Rewards profile, such as from getting a new device or because you reformat, then you’d be unable to connect to Uphold or Gemini.
No, it’s not. The list shows who is able to connect via new Rewards profiles to Uphold or Gemini.
