In consultation with the team at Gemini, linking/verifying (or re-linking) Brave Rewards with a Gemini account is restricted only to the following supported countries of registration, effective immediately:
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- United States
For other areas not currently on this list, Gemini and Brave together are re-evaluating the sign-up flows to ensure that they are sufficiently clear and straightforward for users. We hope to bring those additional areas back online soon.
Note that those who are currently verified and active in regions that are no longer supported will not be affected by this change while they are still connected to Gemini. However, once their Brave Rewards is logged out or disconnected from Gemini, they will not be able to log in again or re-verify if they are in an unsupported region.
Where applicable, users can still verify with Uphold in regions that are unsupported by Gemini.
We will be sure to post any updates to this thread as we receive them. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
