In a nutshell:
Cubits is a complete bitcoin service.
What we mean by that is that Cubits offers everything you need to go from owning zero bitcoins to buying, exchanging, using and selling them. Like a bitcoin pro.
In other words.
Cubits is both a bitcoin exchange and a bitcoin wallet.
Which means that when you have an account on Cubits you can both:
- Buy and Sell Bitcoins
- Store Bitcoins
The best part?
Cubits is what we call mom-proof.
What is mom-proof you might wonder?
It is our way of telling you that Cubis is so easy to use that our moms, with no bitcoin experience, and let’s be honest very, very limited computer skills, managed to use it.
So let’s take a closer look at how the Cubits service works by looking at both legs, the exchange, and the wallet.
The Cubits Exchange is the first leg and the place where you buy and sell your bitcoins. The exchange links together buyers and sellers from all around the world in a common marketplace so that you can buy and sell your bitcoins in real time.
Sounds advanced and maybe a bit confusing doesn’t it?
But thanks to the Cubits interface you don’t need to worry about that.
Both selling and buying bitcoins is as easy as ABC.
But more about how to use the exchange later.
Just one more thing before we move on.
Don’t be fooled by the easy to use Cubits interface.
Behind it, the technology, security, and complexity are very advanced and highly secure so that you can reap the benefit of fast, secure and hassle-free transactions.
Now let’s take a look at the other function of Cubits, the wallet.
The Cubits wallet is the second leg on Cubits. This is the place where your bitcoins are stored.
Have you ever used an online wallet before?
Or have you ever used an ordinary wallet before?
Our guess is that you have and our point is that the Cubits online wallet works just as other wallets online or even as your ordinary physical wallet.
Only without family pictures.
Let’s pause here and clarify what the wallet is just to be sure you understand.
Do do that we will compare it with the exchange.
The Exchange is where you buy and sell your bitcoins.
The wallet is where you store them.
Not clear enough?
You are going on a tropical vacation to another country (amazing, we know).
Before you go on your well deserved holiday you want to have some local currency. So you go to your local exchange office and trade your local currency to the local currency of your holiday destination.
Makes sense doesn’t it?
This is the equivalent of the Cubits bitcoin exchange. The place where you buy your currency using another currency.
When you have managed to exchange your currency you put the cash in the wallet and put it in your back pocket.
This, of course, is the equivalent of the bitcoin wallet. The cash or in Cubits case the bitcoins is ready to be used!
The only difference is that theCubits bitcoin walletis online and the currency is of course bitcoin.
By now you should understand what Cubits is, what a bitcoin exchange is, what a bitcoin wallet is and the difference between them.
So let’s take it to the next step and see how easy it is to actually use Cubits.
We know what you might be thinking.
Isn’t it complicated to open an account?
I have never bought or used bitcoin isn’t it hard?
We have prepared a step-by-step guide (with pictures) so that you can go from Cubits zero to Cubits Hero!
So don’t worry it’s mom-proof, remember?
How to open a**Cubits account step-by-step**
First head over to Cubits by clicking here. You will be greeted with this:
So far so good.
Click on ”Create an Account” in the middle of the Cubits page or the Sign up” button you will find in the top right corner.
You will be redirected to a sign-up page that looks like this:
The signup process is very easy. Just state your Name, Last Name, E-mail, and password. Remember that you are required to use a special character in your password!
At the bottom, you need to agree with the Terms and Conditions by checking the top box.
Optional: Check the second box as well if you want to receive e-mails from Cubits. Click Sign Up.
Voila! Your account has been created!
You will receive an e-mail where you are asked to confirm your account.
Just click the link and verify your email address.
Now you can log in to your fresh account. The whole process took us about 1-2 minutes.
Now it’s time to log in and finish things up.
OPTIONAL: First we strongly recommend you enable the Cubits two-factor authentication.
This is an extra security measure that adds an extra layer of security to your account.
You will need to download and install the Google Authenticator App on your phone:
To authenticate your account follow these three simple steps:
- Download and open the Google Authenticator App
- Use the scan option in the app and scan the QR code on Cubits
- Enter the 6-digit authentication code from the app on the web browser.
The last step before the account is 100% ready to rock is to verify your identity.
Yes, this app requires you to send in an ID to verify your identity.
In the top right corner next to your name you will find the option to verify. Press the small arrow and choose settings.
You might be wondering why you need to verify?
The answer is that Cubits is a UK based company that needs to adhere to the Anti-Money Laundering regulations.
They do this in cooperation with a company called IDnow.
When you press verify me on your Cubits account an IDnow pop-up will be shown. It looks like this:
This is pretty self-explanatory but put the country of origin, the document type you wish to upload. In the case of UK, only passports are valid. But other countries might accept different types of government ID.
Just a reminder:
Remember that this verification is a one-time process. When this is done you can use Cubits unhindered.
Choose your language and press start verification.
You will be redirected to this page.
You are almost done.
Just follow these steps:
- Enter your mobile number (you will receive a text message with a URL to install the IDnow app.2. Install the app and enter the code you will see in the green box at the bottom.
Your account will be verified and you can start using Cubits!
Once again this is a one-time verification and not something you will have to do every time you want to use Cubits.
When we did the whole process, from creating the account to sending in our verification documents it took seven minutes. No more, no less.
Now we are ready to rock’n roll.
Or at least start using Cubits.
The user interface is pretty easy to understand. So let us keep it short and simple. The top menu looks like this:

Pressing the logo takes you to your balance.
In the middle, we see the menu. Balance, Send, Buy, Sell and Activity.
On the Right:
We have an expandable menu where you find your accounts settings, help section and log out button.
We are almost done with the navigation part.
When you log in to you Cubits account you will automatically land in the Balance Section. It looks like this:
As you can see it is very simple.
There are three sections in the wallet which make it thicker than George Costanza’s wallet.
At least not before we buy some bitcoins.
But more about that later.
The three Cubits wallets parts from the top are:
Buy Crypto Currency - Buy Bitcoins, Bitcoin Cash or Lite Coin.
Wallet Balance - Overview of your balance.
Cash Account Balance -Overview of your fiat balance.

Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Lite Coin
At first, one could only trade and use bitcoins on Cubits. Nowadays both Bitcoin Cash and Lite Coin is available for users.
As with all things in life including crypto-wallets, there are cons as well.
Not US friendly
Cubits is not a US friendly wallet. To be more specific they don’t allow users from the States to buy and sell cryptocurrency. But as a U.S. resident, you still can use the wallet to send and receive cryptocurrencies.
Not completely anonymous
This is actually a pro and a con. If you were looking to be a 100% anonymous this might not be the wallet for you since you need to send in documents verifying your identity. The good thing is that this adds an extra layer of security for your account and funds.
