Wallet for Brave

I want to get active on Brave, but I am finding some obstacles. Gemini is not available in my country (Namibia). Uphold says I already need to hold some BAT before I can start. Honestly, I don’t even want Uphold.

With the new partnership announcement with Solana will this all be much easier? Will I be able to buy some BAT with my Phantom wallet and connect to Brave and become active?
