The three-day withholding period is measured as follows:
The Currency Exchange registers all gold purchases from the previous 24 hours daily at 03:00 UTC.
All the gold from the previous 24 hours has then passed its first day.
You gain full access to your gold at 03:00 UTC on the third day after making a gold purchase.
You can claim the gold from the Currency Exchange, but you can't use it in the following ways during the three-day withholding period:
To send gold through the mail.
To pay for billing mail.
