How to Play Coin Hunt World

If you want to learn how to play Coin Hunt World you found the right place. The Coin Hunt World Wiki has all available game information and some of the top global players are sharing information here. Read through the Coin Hunt World Guide below and make sure to follow the Wiki on Twitter at @chw_wiki.

First Hunt

If you want to plan ahead, use Coin Hunt Map to look for nearby White Vaults or 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. Note that White Vaults are only available in lower-tier countries.

Walk towards the nearest commercial/built-up area. Main Streets, malls, plazas, parks, and high foot traffic areas are the places to go right now. As you walk, each step will count towards reaching your first Walking Quest goal. Collect the Prize Box that pops on top of your Cubie to get White Keys or Blue Keys and solve White Vaults, Blue Vaults. To open Green Vaults you will have to forge your keys. See "Forging a Key" below.

Basic Play Video

Watch this video to see basic gameplay in Coin Hunt World


White Vaults, Blue Vaults and Uservaults respawn at fixed times (noon UTC and midnight UTC for Blue Vaults, noon UTC for Green Vaults, Mondays noon UTC for Yellow Vaults.

Collecting Keys

There are two ways to collect Keys. The easiest way is to open your thrice daily Mystery Boxes that can be found in your Headquarters. You can also do a Walking Quest in your neighborhood to reach walking goals. Each time you complete a goal, you receive a Prize Box with the amount of key given for the achieved goal. Or, you can sell items in the Auction House.

Forging a Key

Forge a Key by tapping on the key at the bottom right of your screen, that's your inventory. Click on the key tab then the key at the bottom. Click on the color you want to forge. Then drag the key to forge. If you don't see any keys when clicking the forge, you likely don't have 10 keys of any color. For additional details see the Forge page.


Level 1 HQ in-game.

The Level 1 Headquarters (HQ) will give access to free Mystery Boxes 3x daily, Mail Box and Chat Settings. You can upgrade your HQ further to gain access to additional functions, including Uservaults at Level 2, Shop and Auction House Buy Menu at Level 3, and Auction House Sell Menu at Level 4. Please see the Headquarters page for additional info on Leveling your HQ.

  • Constructing an HQ is free, but demolishing it will require a Green Key.
    • Place your HQ near your home, or somewhere you frequent daily.
    • During placement, the HQ will be put on the map at the user’s location.
  • An HQ can be demolished on-site or remotely but always costs 1 Green Key to do.
    • On-site: Click on your HQ and hold down the Demolish HQ button and pay the fee.
    • Remotely: Open your settings menu (Cubie icon in the bottom left), then select "Remote Demolish HQ" and pay the fee.
  • Each user is allowed one HQ.
  • Other users will not be able to see your HQ, and your HQ will not conflict with other HQs.


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 and Walking 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:

Adding friends in-game unlocks the Buddy Quest feature.

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 randomly generated tasks 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 gives 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.

UserVault Walkthrough

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.


United States[1] and Canada hunters are able to withdraw the Cryptocurrency they earn in-game through Coin Hunt World's wallet partner Uphold.

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 paying 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.

Each Wednesday a snapshot of players that are linked with Uphold is taken.

Once linked, players who have at least 10 USD in Bitcoin or Ethereum will have it sent to their Uphold account every Thursday.

This 10 USD requirement is separate for each Cryptocurrency. If a player has 12 USD in Bitcoin and 8 USD in Ethereum, only the Bitcoin will be exported.
