Transfer BAT from brave rewards before phone factory reset in the country India

I’ve a need to factory reset my mobile. It has some BAT in its rewards wallet. Can the BAT be transferred, I’m from India

Android 12, miui 13

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (no, uphold stopped supporting India)

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past? (Yes)

Are you using a VPN? (no)

Are you eligible for Brave Rewards (yes)?

Are you on the list of supported regions when verifying Brave Rewards with a custodial partner (no)?

Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)? (yes)

Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to a custodial partner? (yes)

@Aman_M could u help?

Umm. Currently theres nothing that can be done. You could try Verifying in Uphold since some people (including new users) were able to connect to Uphold. Other small chance is that if you had your Gemini account connected to this Rewards profile earlier, you might be able to connect.

can I try transferring it into my brave creators page, though withdrawal to uphold is blocked in that route as well.
If such a transfer is possible, can the BAT be held there indefinitely, till India is supported again?

Yes, I guess. Ill suggest that you don’t though, Brave highly discourages self tipping.

what about this?

I tried tipping 1 BAT as a test, but it hasn’t gone through yet. It’s been more than 3 hours. Does it usually take this long?

It’s on hold I suppose. It’ll show once Uphold’s restored I guess. @Aman_M @Saoiray please confirm

@zootyleon As per this post-

So your all channels/sites will not be considered as verified since you are in the unsupported region (India). The tips will not even get processed. The BATs will stay in the tipping wallet.

Like Adi said, Self-tipping is strongly discouraged.

In general, you are out of luck, except if you back up your Android phone data. Your vBAT is stored inside your phone/device data. So, if you back up your phone and then restore it, then your vBAT balance should still be there.

Do not self tip it. As of the latest version of Brave, your channel should no longer be considered verified (and therefore is not tippable), since your Creators account is not in a supported region anymore at this time.


@chriscat any update for me? Had sent you a DM about not being able to connect to Uphold

@Aman_M @SmartyAadi Drop your website/channel link. I’ll tip u some BAT that I’ve. Since I can’t use it, I want u guys to have it.
Would like to give some to @chriscat as well, but he should have tons of it.r8 :wink:?

Not sure I deserve it. I’ll link it anyway though, lol.
I appreciate you considering me. Thanks so much.

It’s cool. take it as an incentive to further help the needy down the road :grin:


Maybe tip him once the custodial linking of Brave Rewards in India is reinstated :grin:. You can consider tipping Saoiray though. Also, many of the Brave employees may not have BATs at all, contrary to what we may think. Founders could’ve some though.

@SmartyAadi Are you sure you are able to receive tips? You might be in an unsupported region. :wink:

Oh yea. I am in an unsupported region (India). Informed that on his DMs lol. thanks though✨
