If your creator of choice is not already verified with the Brave Rewards program, you can still pledge your support!
Any BAT you tip a creator who has not yet verified with Brave Rewards will remain in your browser. Over the next 90 days, your browser will periodically check to see whether your creator has verified so it can send off your tip. (You can use this period of time to reach out to the creator by tweeting them, emailing them, or contacting them via their website to let them know about BAT & Brave, and that they have some BAT awaiting them!)
For more information about what happens to your BAT contribution if a site or creator is not yet part of the Brave Rewards program, please see our FAQ.
In the past, members of the community have leveraged social media to gain the attention of creators for whom they had pledged their support. Leon Lush, a popular YouTuber with over 1 million subscribers, is one example of a creator who verified with Brave after being tweeted by a fan about the Brave browser, BAT, and how they could benefit him.
See the tweets by a community member that got Leon’s attention:
If one person was able to get Leon’s attention by tweeting him, imagine what the BAT community could accomplish by banding together!
