Brave now supports Gemini custodian wallet

Brave has been my browser of choice for a while now. It is faster, more secure, more private, and has the potential to earn rewards through the optional rewards system.

One of the major problems with their rewards system has always been Uphold being the only option for custodian of BAT rewards. Yesteday Brave announced the release of Gemini support as the custodian wallet for Brave users.

If you go to verify your wallet, you now have the choice to select Gemini or Uphold.

Verification and quick but does depend on a verified Gemini account.

If you have funds in Uphold and you use it as your custodian wallet, you will need to transfer those funds to Gemini or where ever you want those funds to be.

If you want to switch to Uphold, you can disconnect your wallet in Brave rewards and select Gemini.

If you are a new Gemini user, you will receive 5 BAT after 30 days of signing up and linking your BAT wallet. You can also potentially earn ~3.5% APR by holding your BAT on Gemini.

You can read more about the partnership on the Gemini announcement page or Brave announcement page.

Check out the announcement video if you need more information.

Interesting development I know the feedback on their internal wallet wasn't very positive so this seems like a solid move on their part.

Didn't know you could earn on APR on it that's enough to make me make the move.
Is there any KYC and all that BS with the wallet?

It's always good to have other options. I didn't want to use Uphold because of the KYC not sure if Gemini's any better though...

Same....I never took advantage of the rewards just for this reason.

I'm glad they have something other than Uphold. I still wish I could just stick it into Coinbase without having to use ANOTHER wallet, though.

I use brave on my mobile, but without the BAT version. I understand the version with BAT is a less secure beta. Isn't it?

On mobile you used to be able to get BAT but I believe Apple had them remove it. I use Brave on mobile but I do not use rewards.

Thanks for sharing this I use brave as a browser also and I love it. Does it mean I can get the rewards also?

Ok. Is there no difficulty in withdrawing and depositing in the wallet?

I've been using brave for a long time and I'm fine, I don't know how to transfer the bats I earn. I'll have to try to figure it out sooner or later.
