I started Brave today and on the main screen there was some menu for a program called Binance. You can turn it off on the preferences tab, but I never asked for this. Is Brave becoming like every other browser and adding a bunch of shit you don't need because there is some unwritten international law that you can't have a browser that is not actively ruining your browsing experience?

The below article is not very promising. Bloatware incoming?

If rewards are enabled, the new tab page will sometimes display an ad. You do get rewards for those.

Usually it's just a themed background image and an ad in the corner where it would normally display the photographer credit.

Is the site no longer showing up as being verified to receive tips for anyone else, or is that just an issue on my end?

Huh, mine shows verified on both. I did a quick search and it's recommended to try this to fix:
"Once quick thing to try is disabling Rewards, closing the app, clearing it from system memory (killing the process), relaunching and re-enabling Rewards."
Hope that helps!

It didn't work for me.

On another note, apparently there's a glitch with claiming earned rewards this month. Brave gave me the message to claim, but when I tried to go through the process, it wouldn't finish the task. At least my reward is still there, though. Some people's rewards have disappeared. I found a post about it saying they are working on it.

Sorry your bucks haven't arrived yet, Null.

I'm having this issue and looked into it. if you're on mobile it's supposed to be fixed soon.

An update regarding verification status on mobile devices.

We are currently rolling out some major upgrades to the verified publishers and creators list that mobile devices use to check whether a site is verified. As part of this maintenance, we have temporarily disabled the verified creators and publishers list for mobile devices.

What you may see: Some users on mobile may notice that no websites or channels are appearing as verified, or that newer sites are not being detected as verified when they should be.

Once these upgrades are complete, verification status detection on mobile will return to normal.

We thank you for your patience as we work to improve the Mobile Rewards experience, and we will keep you updated on our progress.

Thank you,
The Brave Rewards Team

I got problems with two things using Brave:
1. I linked my BATs to Gemini, then wanted to add a debit card. They took micro amounts from my account in €, but when I need to enter the amount they took as a verification, the amount is asked in $, and it is not possible to change that, so i can only guess by the current exchange rates and i always get it wrong, so i cant get that money at all to my account.
2. Each time i search something in google, i get that captcha screen which i need to solve before i can get to my search results. It's getting pretty annoying. Makes me want to go back to Chrome. At least there weren't such issues.
Help anyone?
