CubeNation started in August 2016, by an agonized Cuber who wanted a cubing-related shop, that could give him the necessary specs that he needed at an understandable price. It started with Zero-Investment(allegedly) by taking pre-orders from the customers. Like most businesses, it failed miserably on its first attempt. The calculation for the shipment and custom tax was wrong. We had to bear a loss of 50k and suddenly, we were in a very bad position. We thought of going rogue too. Luckily, we received some funding. We tried again after we finally understood the import regulations. Then we dealt with our suppliers in China to get the cubes, created a website, made visiting cards, purchased shipping materials, and other related stuff. Everything was set.
An anonymous philosopher once said, “Just Name it!”
So we had to name our venture. We searched for good names for days. Yet, we couldn’t find any that would suit us. Out of the blue, one of our cuber friends, Sreshtho, on August 27th, 2016, voiced the word “CubeNation”. Rest is history.
Over time, Cubenation became very popular.

Farhan has some supernatural powers in real(Uplifting a giant cheque is one of them). He is a perfectionist. Whatever you tell him to do he will say yes, but won’t actually do that. Instead, he will create something which is way better than what you imagined. Some people say he is from the future because his sarcasm level is 9000(beware of his sarcastic comments and trolls).
