The first image is the flow of BTC into the official addresses. As of today, most of the BTC resides at address bc1qu4qcqp5xthrreedgk4s28kkqddpv4my53zx3uw (140 BTC) and 3CcF942kYVRotGrfYQxD4QNn4aKVywpRxb (37.79 BTC), or an approximate total of $7.7M.

The second image below shows the flow of ETH into the official address, moved into address 0x77ab999d1e9f152156b4411e1f3e2a42dab8cd6d, and then mostly transferred into various exchanges across the globe.

Lastly, the movement of ERC-20 tokens are highlighted. From Tether, DAI, USDC to 250+ other tokens some of which are well-known such as Shiba Inu, Loopring, MATIC, etc. World token is a known scam from this event so stay away from it.
