I have connected my Brave Rewards with my Uphold account long ago and received BAT a lot of the times in the past. Since about a year ago, a sudden problem started and Brave says connecting Uphold is not available in my region. I live in UAE.
Does this mean I cannot receive anymore BAT, or does it simply mean I cannot connect Uphold here in Brave Rewards?
I am able to use Uphold normally in this country, then what is the issue with Brave?
What other incentive/motivation mechanism available for us in the UAE to use Brave (of course, other than its privacy and security features, which are great in their own right)?
Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts and support.
Thanks for this swift responses. Just one last question on this.
Because I could not have a verified profile on this browser, whatever rewards I earned are stored locally in the browser on my PC. If I want to clean install another OS on this PC, I will have no option but to loose all the rewards earned so far. Is this right?
If this is right, I better turn off the rewards feature completely and just keep using Brave like any other FOSS.
Will I not be able to send the rewards to Brave wallet? Is there a way I can backup the tokens in Brave wallet in a format that I can re-import back into wallet once reinstall the OS? Sorry I am new to all this crypto business, my questions may be silly.
Unfortunately I am not on Windows. I currently use Fedora, and I am planning to replace this with Windows soon. So the reddit post you shared may not help me, but can help others. So tagged it as a solution. Thanks for all the help so far.
One last question. If I choose country carefully during the setup, say I choose a country where Uphold is allowed, will it save the situation? Or is there geo location identifier in the browser that will again stop me from setting it to a different country?
