Philippines can’t be connected. It has been this way for quite some time now. Changes to Brave Ads Regional Availability

You can also see that Uphold shows on their website that they do not support Philippines at https://support.uphold.com/hc/en-us/articles/205845376-Where-does-Uphold-offer-bank-account-funding-and-withdrawals- as it is not one of the 35 countries where they are doing business.

As to Gemini allowing accounts, the list of accepted countries can be seen at NOTICE: New region restrictions on verifying Brave Rewards with Gemini


Hi Saoiray,

So, I will not be able to withdraw/claim my remaining balance for the month of May 2022 with Uphold/Gemini?

Correct, it just will remain in your balance within your browser unless/until you tip someone. And if anything happens to your browser, you will lose it all as it’s not synced on the internet but is literally within your browser/device.

At least this is how it’s been explained based on the link(s) I’ve shared with you. This said, some who said they had accounts approved prior had still been receiving BAT. It SHOULD NOT happen but I’m saying this part to say that anything is possible these days. Yet if it works as intended, you only will receive in browser and unable to get on Gemini or Uphold.
