Hello BAT & Brave Rewards community!
We wanted to give you a heads up about an update to Brave Rewards that is coming in v1.27 of Brave (both desktop and Android). Starting in Brave v1.27, the “Estimated Pending Rewards” counter has been renamed “Current earnings this month (estimated)”, and will now more clearly show your estimated pending rewards for the current month.
When a new month begins, the display value of the current earnings will reset, and you will now see a countdown that tells you when your BAT earnings over the previous month will be arriving (for example, “+0.02 BAT arriving in 5 days”).
The “Current earnings this month (estimated)” counter may also reset each month to an amount greater than 0, as sometimes small amounts of earnings are not actually accounted for until the next month, based on how the Brave Ads protocol works to protect your privacy.
Note: Some users were affected by a bug where very old estimated earnings (from many months ago) were being carried over month to month with no way to clear or claim these old estimated pending rewards amounts. Upon updating to v1.27, these old estimated BAT amounts will no longer appear, as the estimated pending rewards counter—now the “Current earnings this month (estimated)” counter—will now correctly show only the pending earnings for the current month.
We’re excited to roll this feature out, and think it will make understanding your Brave Ads earnings a lot easier moving forward. As always, thank you for being part of the BAT & Brave community!
