How to avoid the 12-16 Bat withdraw fee from Brave browser/Uphold.
First of all credits where credit is due thank you /u/The-Alcoholic-Seal for bringing this to my Attention some time ago!
Now to the point.
First of all, if you aren't using the Brave browser you should look it up, it's built on Chrome and you can turn on a setting called 'Do not track' which sends an request to the site you are visiting to not track you and for 90% of the sites it works.
It's actually incredible fast and have become my every day browser.
And the most important part is that when you use the Privacy mode then Brave connects you to the next site with a Tor Proxy so your wife/gf/Nsa/Fbi will have a hard a time tracking you.
When you use it you earn BAT just for using the browser, they use an ad system where you dont even have to click on the ads to get rewarded it just opens opens another tab if you click it (it pops up in the down right corner'.
And in the long round you will accumulate a decent amount of BAT.
And here comes the main part.
You have the option to either keep your earned BAT in the browser itself or you can sync the in built wallet to Uphold.
So if you are like me you would synch it and then after some time you want to withdraw the BAT to either another wallet or an exchange.
But here comes the shitty part, you go ahead and is about to withdraw the Bat and then you notice the absurd withdraw fee that ranges from 12 to 16 Bat which would take you around 3-6 Months to earn dependant on your Browser ad settings and how much you actually use the Browser.
Iv'e seen many people complain about the Withdraw fee BUT apperently there is away to go around it which isn't really that straight forward to you if you just skim past Uphold.
Apperently you can Convert BAT on Uphold to another Crypto and the fee for withdrawing for an example XRP or DASH is more or less non existance on Uphold.
So after using Brave for a year but didn't want to pay the absurd fee i Converted my BAT yesterday to XRP and send them away to one of the Exchanges that i'm using.
I hope this help someone and thanks once again /u/The-Alcoholic-Seal for bringing this to my attention!
Edit: And yes i sent a pm to /u/the-Alcoholic-Seal some time ago and suggested him to make a post about this, but the post never came and i saw more and more complaining about the fee so i went ahead and made a post myself.
Edit 2: Last edit, on the Android app you have to earn a min of 25 Bat to sync the wallet to Uphold but there is talks about lowering it.
