How long to wait before new job confirmation?

Just received verbal confirmation from a startup regarding a job offer. How long can one wait before giving a green signal? Yet to receive the offer letter and hoping it takes longer. Reason being, i was not actively looking for a new job and this exciting prospect has come to me. Should i aggressively apply to multiple places now? My current role is also good at VMware which is why this is all the more confusing! Thoughts?
Current TC - 177k base + 30k bonus + 70k per year RSUs (senior MTS)
What compensation should the startup offer so that i do not lose much?

    Good lord son, why don't you also ask us what you should be eating for breakfast every day.

      Quick answer to your other questions, never commit to anything until paper is in hand. I usually only leave if new TC is 10 to 20% higher if I'm happy where I'm at.
