COMMENTS

The condition 2) imposes, for any k, 2 and 4 for values of the first two kth differences and hence 2^1 to 2^(1+k) for the (1+k) first differences and finally (2^n)1 for values of k(n){n;1;k+2).
In conclusion, in the limit, the terms of the sequence r(k) will be when k tends to infinity = inf(n) = 2^n  1 (1,3,7,15,31,63,127,255,511,...).

EXAMPLE

Construct the following array where the sequence k(n) of the kth row is the unique one 1) whose numbers and their kth differences include exactly all numbers once 2) where both of the sequence and the sequence of their kth differences are increasing:
1 3 7 12 18 26 35 45 56 69 83
1 3 7 15 28 47 74 110 156 213 282 ...
1 3 7 15 31 60 108 183 294 451 665 ...
1 3 7 15 31 63 124 233 417 712 1164 ...
1 3 7 15 31 63 127 252 486 904 1617 ...
Sequence consists of the terms of this array read by antidiagonals.
Of course, the first row is A005228.
