I’m a Brave Browser user, I support the projetc, I bought BATs on Binance, I study the project, I introduced some friends to Bave and It’s been very frustrating.

My UpHold account is veryfied (with a lot of documents). My Creators profile and Youtube Channels are already veridifed.

I have a lot of BATs on my account that was schedule to be pay on March 8th. But since March 9th my account is suspended and no payments where made on my UpHold account.

The Brave project suposed to be a platform where you pay/Support

ANY content creator with ANY amount of Tokens/Payments, and since your “automated system” detected suspicious activities, a lot of creators did not get the payout.

You know what it seems?

It seems that Brave is no descentralized.

It seens that UpHold get a lot of tokens on every payment.

It seens YOU control WHO deserves to pay what.

No matter if I have a small youtube channel, ou evern a small website. You will chose who deserves to get the payout.

So, let me ask you:

  1. What if I add a whole Ethereum or even a BTC and send to my girlfriend’s YouTube channel? Are you going to suspend her account due to “suspicious activities”?

  2. Who will get her funds?

Brave is no more about freedom.

You are doind the same thing Youtube/Google does.

I hope you respect the community, and I still waiting my payout.

Thank you for sharing and publicizing your concern. It is important for issues like this to be made clear and publicly known.

The truth is that Brave/BAT is simply another centralized system of rewarding content creators.

  1. Uphold keeps our private data (they have no long history of proven success, integrity and security infrastructure)
  2. Inability to decouple from Uphold
  3. Many people reported getting significantly less than the total tips
  4. Reliance on a few moderators to fix issue #3 on a case-by-case basis (centralized and inefficient)
  5. Failure to restore the BAT wallet elsewhere (the 24-word seed cannot be restored using any wallet elsewhere to access the fund; must be accessed through Uphold by sending funds from Uphold)

I may have sounded harsh, but if Brave/BAT wants to succeed, it needs to adhere to its core philosophy. At its current state, it is centralized and managed inefficiently.

BlockquoteI may have sounded harsh, but if Brave/BAT wants to succeed, it needs to adhere to its core philosophy. At its current state, it is centralized and managed inefficiently.

That is the idea. They can not promises a better solution than the current model (google/youtube) and do the same.
Even Twitch can garantee any amount of tips.

I’ve sent all these questions to "support+publishers@basicattentiontoken.org" and until now they don’t answer me.

I still waiting my payout.
