Mmm well in MCU they made it quite clear, that you shouldn't be touching the cube with your bare hand... We all seen what happened with Red Skull when he did it? So im just guessing that the Cube is very unpredictable when someone actually holds it.
So maybe Loki knew the cube can give you more power but he didn't want to risk it, because the cube might not respond as expected..
