Facing same issue. On Gemini itself received rewards till last month.

Thanks @Chocoholic, I am from India, as per the link shared above for supported regions uphold still supports India as a region. But there seems to a temporary issue which will be fixed soon.

  1. India (temporarily unavailable as of June 6, 2022 — we are working to restore support for India soon)

@ravikumar You might be interested in reading the Weekly Bat Discussion thread posted below. Lots of Interesting information and it isn’t very long. Best kind! lol

Quoted a section after the link that specifically applied to India. Don’t hold your breath as time estimates can be way off but this is the first time I’ve seen an actual time goal posted by a Brave employee. Keep the “depends on several factors” in mind and don’t harp if the estimate is not met! :smiley:

Has uphold, too, stopped supporting India? Just got ‘Error: Region not supported’ for verifying with uphold. :frowning:

Atleast one custodian wallet should support. When will it get resolved? Any ETA?

Reply bat-chriscat - BAT Team | Product Manager (Rewards)

Yes, it’s temporarily disabled. We are working on bringing back support. Hopefully within next 2 months, but depends on several factors.

You might also want to review the topic linked below. It was where I ran across the link.
Region not supported error GEMINI - #61 by Aman_M

Is gemini available in India?

Gemini is available for Indians but you cannot use it for Brave rewards.

I can’t verify my laptop browser’s reward to uphold and I am verified on my mobile using same.

Again, if you’re from India you can no longer connect. It may show you connected to prior devices but once it logs out, which it is destined to do, you’ll no longer be able to link it to Uphold. Please read links that people have provided in posts.

@iamop Noticed your post/comment. Not sure why you deleted it, but that’s fine too. Just so you know, they are trying to find ways to make it happen. The official response from Brave when I talked to their executives not too long ago is quoted below:

We’ve moved fast in trying to get BAT to everyone and make ourselves available in as many regions as possible. Unfortunately each government has different restrictions and we’ve encountered some pushback from that in different countries. For example, each country has different requirements for KYC/AML among other things that weren’t being met by current standards, so those regions had to be put on hold while this gets resolved.

We really want India and other countries to be able to be Verified and are working behind the scenes to do everything we need. We hope to get this resolved ASAP but there’s no timeline.

They are losing out on money by this happening and they don’t want it to be like that. Unfortunately, there were issues that are being addressed. How long it will take before they can reopen or provide other options is unknown.

We do know that there’s another Exchange that Brave said is going to be added soon, which provides an option other than Uphold and Gemini. But they are working out the details so they can’t tell us when this will happen, if it will be available to all or specific regions, etc.

Philippines and Vietnam have had this issue over 6 months now. India just been one month. Let that kind of let you know it might be a while. All you can do is be patient.

Same problem, it used to work fine. From Greece. What happened and will it be fixed?

I am from Switzerland and wanted to link to Gemini but got the same error:

Fehler: Region nicht unterstützt

Leider können Ihre Brave Belohnungen nicht verifiziert werden, da Ihre Region derzeit nicht für die Verifizierung von Brave Belohnungen unterstützt wird.

I don’t understand why I am getting this message since I am in a supported region.

I do have this issue, I live in USA,
I can log in to uphold account in a separate tab, but it won’t connect to Brave wallet when I try the circle button it gives the following error.

@hutchnd What state do you live in? The notice linked below was posted previously but I do not know if this is accurate as both the Uphold notice and the Help Center article indicate USA is supported without exception. If this does not apply, you should probably submit a request to support to have them investigate using this form: Submit a request. USA users should not be receiving a region not supported message (with the possible exception of Hawaii). Also, what is “the circle button”? Not ringing a bell, sorry.

For now, do not disconnect from your Uphold account. You may still be able to receive Rewards payouts to your Uphold account even though you are logged out. Hopefully your issue will be resolved before payouts roll around again but who knows. Please post an update or create your own topic if you have additional questions or information to share. :smiley:

NOTICE: New region restrictions on Uphold (very important info for users in Hawaii)
