# A 7-day Cool-Off Period¶

If an attack vector exists, either discretely or abstractly, its frequency and potential damage can be effectively nullified with the introduction of a mandatory waiting period, prior to the withdrawal of user’s funds. Compared to the current 100 day vesting period, a 7-day cool-off represents an effective drop of 93% in mandatory wait time prior to full protection. In context, the additional prudency still affords users an improved offering, without conceding any vulnerabilities to the system.
