3 days ago it was listed that uphold support in India is temporarily unavailable and we are working to recover uphold support in India. Now, Brave finally removed it from the list and now there is list of only 19 countries. Is there anything else(another method) will come to withdraw earnings in India? Please Brave post something so that we can relax that we can withdraw our earnings using current or any other method.

yes there is a way .

What way? Please tell!

No, they just listed which countries are currently able to connect to Uphold and Gemini. As India is temporarily unavailable, this means India is not going to be on the list. Once they get things sorted out and able to add India again, they will.

They emphasized recently how India and France are among their top priorities to get connected again. Whereas countries like Philippines and Vietnam may yet be a while.

Keep in mind there is a difference between supported region for Brave Ads and supported region for custodial wallets

India and others are still able to participate in Brave Rewards. You just are unable to withdraw them for the time being, until things get sorted out.

And for those of you in India, you should be aware of your own country causing issues and changing things.

Any idea when the support will be available in India. Is there a chance or not?

No timeline is known.

Absolutely. India and France are the top two priorities in terms of establishing countries again.

@Saoiray ,
I assume till the issue is resolved, brave users in India will keep browsing and earning BATs as they did earlier. But, if by the next payment date on 8th August 2022, the problem is not resolved, will you still deposit the earned BATs in the respective verified Uphold/Gemini accounts of the users ? Uphold mailed me that we can then transfer from Uphold to other crypto custodian accounts and then withdraw the amount.

It won’t be sent to your verified wallet, it’ll just accumulate on your device, those BATs will be lost if you uninstall brave or lose your phone…factory reset it…etc. etc. You can still use the funds you already have in Uphold, you can withdraw it anytime, the only thing that’s temporarily down is the thing where you receive BAT directly in your Uphold/Gemini custodial accounts

That’s 100% correct. It is temporary in the grand scheme of things, but looking at a 2-3 months of not being able to connect to Uphold or Gemini.
