"This creator is unable to receive contributions from Gemini" - why?

I’ve noticed that I can’t give an on-demand contribution (tip) to some verified sites because “This creator is unable to receive contributions from Gemini.”


Why is this? My own verified site (https://www.technicallyproduct.co.uk) is one of the ones affected - not that I would tip myself of course - so I’m keen to find a solution. I’ve tried changing my connected account in Brave Creators from Uphold to Gemini but it did not resolve the issue.

Even stranger (and possibly unrelated), when I did this I got an error message saying “It looks like you’re in an unsupported country for Brave Creators with Gemini”, even though I’m in the UK and this is one of the supported countries according to the list on: https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/6539887971469-Supported-regions-for-verifying-Brave-Rewards-with-a-custodial-account-provider-

So… both as a user and a publisher, I’d like to know why some sites can’t receive a contribution from Gemini?

Cross custodial tipping isn’t possible yet cause that will be a withdrawal and deposit type transaction (I suppose). They are working on it though. You say you’re in the UK, but is your ID for KYC / AML from the UK too ?
We’ve had people saying they are in a supported region but had ID from an unsupported regions, so just wanna make sure.
