What is Qubix?
Qubix is a frictionless cryptocurrency investment app that empowers its users to invest in some of the best cryptos available. Qubix provides easy to digest information and offers a variety of pre-set mixes to take the guess work out of investing.
Rather than a trading platform where individuals try to beat the market, Qubix is focused on long-term sustainable investing strategies.

Despite growing interest and widespread adoption, crypto investing remains complex and often overwhelming. Knowledge about crypto and the act of investing take a significant amount of time to understand, relative to traditional financial assets.
Owing to the youth of the area, many prospective investors simply lack basic understanding of the asset class and how to invest. This can lead to costly mistakes and poor asset allocation fuelled by a fear of missing out on hot trends. Investors are pushed into focusing on short term day trading with little knowledge and extreme disadvantages to professional investors and market makers, rather than long term sustainable horizons.
The value of certain assets such as a single Bitcoin, in addition to a wide spectrum of platforms and methods, lead to frictions in the investment process. This results in investors thinking they need large sums of money to invest, combined with limited consumer confidence.
Investing methods are also inefficient, with invasive and tedious onboarding processes combined with time consuming bank transactions through untrustworthy third party applications.
The Qubix Solution
Qubix was engineered with a central focus on resolving these exact issues. The team has validated the product with user testing in order to address key pain points and ensure the platform takes a user-centric approach.
Qubix simplifies complex crypto definitions and provides relevant but easy to digest chunks of information. This ensures the platform is accessible by all tiers of investors, from experienced crypto traders to uninitiated newcomers.
Easy to Use
The Qubix platform is easy to use, providing pre-set mixes of a wide variety of prime cryptocurrencies to help users start their journeys.
Qubix allows accessible investment through recurring transactions from as little as $9. This creates a sustainable investment strategy that promotes saving and wealth building.
Onboarding to get started is quick and easy, with no requirements to take and upload photos of yourself or sensitive documents. Qubix can onboard 70% of users through trusted partners without collecting any form of ID.
The Market Landscape
Cryptocurrency is experiencing a more sustained growth period than in the past, reflecting an increasing degree of widespread and institutional adoption. While the industry remains young and with immense growth potential, it is gradually being integrated into the mainstream, having grown to $1.5 trillion. Blockchain and crypto functionalities are being utilised by more organisations every day.
As a result, crypto investment itself and the platforms that facilitate it are on the rise. The majority of companies being formed revolve around crypto exchanges, rather than recurring investment platforms.
Qubix was built based on direct feedback from comprehensive market research. As a result, it will focus on accessibility and sustainability, in order to differentiate itself from the pack. Pre-set mixes of a wide variety of cryptocurrencies creates interest for both new and experienced investors, with the platform offering investment options beyond just Bitcoin and Ethereum.
With its technology developed and tested, Qubix is ready to launch to its market and focus on growth.
Qubix plans to implement a two-phase approach as it launches.
Initially, the company will focus on a broad and aggressive awareness strategy to educate its customers, build trust and establish itself as the market leader. Micro-investing in cryptocurrency will need to be introduced to the market in an accessible and attractive fashion.
Qubix will then switch to an acquisition drive, to look to scale the number of active users and maximise its reach. The company intends to execute highly targeted digital campaigns, leveraging data insights to influence future campaigns and activity.
Over the longer-term, Qubix will focus on sustainable growth across Australia and into wider markets. The company will continue to develop its platform, introducing new features to access new revenue streams while increasing customer utility.
With the theme of growing everyday Australian financial wellbeing, Qubix will look to develop and integrate additional features such as Decentralised Finance (DeFi) savings, smart money and fractional shares.
Why Equity Crowdfunding?
With cryptocurrency acting as a worldwide disruptor in the finance industry, Qubix believes it only makes sense to raise capital in a similar fashion, harnessing the power of the crowd through a decentralised platform.
Qubix wants to allow all Australians to invest in crypto, and accordingly wants to also give them the chance to invest and share in any future success.
The company will use funds raised to drive an aggressive marketing strategy, in addition to continuing to improve the platform and its features.

Key Risks Facing the Business
The Company faces risks from the relative volatility of cryptocurrency assets. Significant negative periods could hurt the Company’s image given investor funds will be affected.
The Company is exposed to risk in its go-to-market launch and may face unexpectedly low levels of interest in the application.
Qubix relies on its technology backend. If the Company were to have key technology infrastructure fail, even temporarily, it may harm user trust levels and user experiences.
The Company is entering a competitive area of the market for both crypto startups and investing platforms. Activity of key competitors may undermine the Company’s potential market share.
Qubix relies on a number of key individuals to run and grow the business. If any of these individuals were to leave, it may harm the Company’s ability to meet its objectives.
Qubix is currently raising capital to meet its objectives and continue to grow. It will still require future capital raisings to continue to grow, and failure to secure sufficient funding may hinder its ability to do so.
Qubix faces an inherent risk with the recent COVID-19 pandemic as all other businesses. Additional lockdowns or periods of uncertainty may harm consumer sentiment and result in a lack of user uptake.
Qubix is operating in the new and fast moving area of cryptocurrency. While the Company complies with current regulation, there is a risk that the regulatory environment shifts and requires Qubix to gain new licencing or accreditation to continue to operate. Failure to do so may harm the business's ability to operate or expand into new product lines.
