At the time of writing, Bitcoin and Ethereum yielded 2.66% and 4% losses for holders respectively. 

Typically, accumulation of altcoins by large wallet holders like Justin Sun could reduce the selling pressure on the assets and pave the way for prices to recover or rally in the short-term. Previously, Justin Sun has withdrawn SHIB from Binance in large volumes. The impact of the large volume withdrawals on altcoin prices remains to be seen.
