After you verify your channel and opt-in to the referral promotion, you will see three metrics being tracked on the dashboard.
Increments if a user you referred downloads the Brave Browser using your referral code.
Increments when a user opens the Brave Browser for the first time.
Increments after minimal usage of the Brave Browser over a 30 day period. Please note that the $5 BAT rewards are only given out for confirmations.
In order to claim referral payouts as fiat currency, you will need to link a verified Uphold account. These payouts will occur on the marked payout date listed underneath your BAT balance on the Rewards dashboard.
