Hi there,

Just to be clear, the “Things to check” list above states:

“Please note that the payout beginning on January 7th is for Brave Ads earnings throughout November (plus any BAT you’ve accumulated before that). If you only recently enabled Brave Ads (for example, on December 2nd, 2021), you will receive your payout in next month’s payout period.”

So. have Brave Rewards always been automatically paid out to registered (and linked) Gemini and Uphold accounts a full 2 MONTHS AFTER the rewards are earned?!? Or is that a typo in the status message summary? I’m pretty sure people assume payouts happening at the beginning of a month are for rewards accumulated in the immediately previous month(s). Brave Support, please clarify.

If that is a typo and the January 7, 2022 payment is for December 2021 (and prior) accumulations, then I’m missing the payment to my verified Gemini account! I expected at least 2 BAT tokens for all of December 2021.

Thanks.
