Bitcoin Strategist Foresees ‘Omega Candles’ Igniting Shift to $1M Mark


As the curtain rises on a new chapter in the world of Bitcoin, Samson Mow, the chief strategist at Jan3, shared his well-earned wisdom with Forbes. At its core, Mow spoke about the recent Bitcoin halving and its potentially transformative effect on the market. Most exciting is the possibility of igniting what he termed the “Omega candles”- highly significant price movements that could potentially skyrocket Bitcoin to the unprecedented mark of $1 million.

Much of the discussion revolved around the intriguing concept of Bitcoin halvings, a crucial part of the cryptocurrency’s lifecycle. These halvings ensure Bitcoins distribution is regulated, thereby preserving rarity and value. Just as nature maintains equilibrium, Bitcoin halvings delicately balance supply and demand, a crucial mechanism implanted into Bitcoin’s core by its mysterious creator, Satoshi Nakamoto.

This preordained process slashes the block rewards earned by miners by a whopping 50% after every 210,000 blocks, a period equaling roughly four years. For example, the most recent halving shrank the gratuity received for mining from 6.25 BTC to a more modest 3.125 BTC per block. A stark contrast from the beginning when 50 BTC was the reward for every block mined.

However, thanks to the halvings, this allocated amount shrinks gradually, paving the way to manage inflation while stretching out the mining life of Bitcoin’s capped supply of 21 million coins. Absent these halvings, the total supply of Bitcoin would be depleted.

In the same conversation, Mow underscored the profound influence of the recently approved spot-based Bitcoin ETFs, greenlit earlier by the SEC. He expressed confidence that these ETFs, coupled with the dwindling block rewards resulting from the halving, could lead to a substantial supply shock in the BTC market.

The imagery-intense term ‘Omega candles’ was used by Mow to describe substantial price movement events within the Bitcoin market. Before the latest halving, the daily demand for Bitcoins outstripped supply, making these Omega Candle events inevitable, courtesy of their volatility and significant price shifts.

Mow’s interpretation draws the picture of an opening act for an exhilarating new epoch for Bitcoin, tied to the upcoming fifth halving within the next four years.

In addition, the bright future of Bitcoin also earned support from Geoff Kendrick of Standard Chartered. With an optimistic perspective, Kendrick projected substantial cash inflow into Bitcoin, likening it to the swelling influx experienced by gold following the arrival of gold ETFs.

Despite the post-halving price falling short of predictions, Bitcoin showcased toughness and a promising scope for substantial growth. Bitcoin analysts, undeterred, continue to project appreciable long-term value increases.

One such example is Michael Sullivan’s analysis, which proposes a possible rise to a staggering $245,000 by 2029 if Bitcoin maintains a 30% compound annual growth rate. This ambitious projection echoes the buoyant sentiments shared by several market experts.

Asserting this optimism further, the latest trends including a 7.1% surge in Bitcoin’s price over the past week, which denotes a promising recovery just around the corner.
