  1. I received this from Wix about linking my Brave rewards to my Wix website:
    18/03/2020
    Currently, it is not possible to add files to the root-directly of your domain in Wix.

    We are always working to upgrade and improve our products, and all feedback is taken very seriously and sent to the relevant department, where it is weighed up and prioritized along with other requests within the development timeline.

    Kind regards,

    1. Hi, it looks like wix.com doesn’t allow you to connect your website to Brave via a trusted file upload. Don’t worry tho, If you can edit the DNS records of your domain you can still connect your website to Brave. Just click on “I’ll edit DNS records” instead of adding a trusted file, then follow Brave’s instructions and you are ready to go 🙂

    1. Yes, you can but only if you can edit DNS records. So if you have bought a domain from a site like GoDaddy, when Brave asks for the website verification select “I’ll edit my DNS records” and follow their instructions 🙂
