First Hunt

If you want to plan ahead, use Coin Hunt Map to look for nearby  Blue Keys and  Blue Vaults. If you don't see anything on the map, that just means nobody has mapped your area yet and you'll have to explore on your own.

Head towards the nearest commercial/built up area. Main Streets, malls, plazas, parks and high foot traffic areas are the places to go right now. Collect  Blue Keys and solve  Blue Vaults or  Green Vaults.

To rank higher on the Leaderboards, you must obtain Leaderboard Points (LBPs). LBPs are acquired by solving vaults, printing cubies (the first print only), completing Buddy Quests, fueling  Cubiedozers and  Cubiecranes with  Resin, and from referrals. The top players of each month receive rewards via Monthly Leaderboard Contests.

As of 8/21/21, there are four  Leaderboards in the game:

To see your friends list or to add a friend: Once in-game tap on the Blue Cubie cubie icon in the bottom left corner, then tap on FRIENDS, followed by MANAGE FRIENDS, and finally ADD FRIEND. By entering their username you will be able to send them your friend invite.

You can find more friends on  Discord. There is a Buddy Quest channel where people can ask for friend requests.

Buddy Quests

You and a buddy may be paired up to complete a Buddy Quest. Buddy Quests are a randomly generated task given to players who have added each-other as friends. Each player will have to find a vault within a 3 Mile/~5KM radius of their respective HQs which has turned into the quest location. You will see red pings emanating from the direction you should look. You will have to coordinate with your buddy and each of you will have to be present at your respective buddy quest locations at the same time to complete the task. Buddy Quests last a week before expiring. You can only have one Buddy Quest active at a time, so you may want to keep only active users on your friends list!

Both players will receive a  Yellow Key after successfully finishing the Buddy Quest.


 Printshops are locations where you can craft cubies. They are normally located in major centers of commerce, such as large malls.

Printshops are now located at every Walmart, Target, and Canadian Tire across Canada and the US!

Quick Printing Tutorial

User Vaults

Uservaults are vaults that can be created and placed by players! Before you can get started with Uservaults you must follow these steps below:

To place a new Uservault the player needs to first unlock a Uservault spot in their  Headquarters. Each spot costs 1  Green Key.

A lock symbol shows up on the main screen. Go to the exact location you want to place the new Uservault and click the lock symbol.

The game will ask you to take a picture and then fill out some information about the location.

A Yellow Flag is marking the spot until the location is approved which should take less than 72 hours. The player gets informed via in-game message when the Uservault is approved.

After approval the Yellow Flag turns into a  Cubiedozer.

The Cubiedozer needs to be filled with 10'000  Resin. Any player can add resin in 100 increments which give Leaderboard Points. There is no time limit to fill the Cubiedozer.

Once the Cubiedozer reaches 10'000  Resin, it will turn into a Uservault after one hour.

Special Events

Currently there are multiple ways of joining in on Special Events.  Floating Vaults, Boosted Vaults, Printing Events, and Photo Competitions are some of the many ways you can earn extra crypto and in-game items.


Users are able to withdrawal the Cryptocurrency they earn in-game through Coin Hunt World's wallet partner  Uphold. Transfers of in-game crypto to Uphold happen automatically every Tuesday.

In order to use this service, players need to have an account with  Uphold, which can be created for free. Players must also unlock the Uphold export functionality in-game by sacrificing 10,000  Resin. Finally, as an anti-cheating measure, new players are required to have successfully completed at least one Photo Quest before they are allowed to withdraw cryptocurrency to their Uphold account.
