If A053829 is written as a triangle then the rows converge to this sequence; see the conjecture in A000120.

The sequence is the base b=8 case in a family of 8 sequences for base b=2 (A063787) and bases 3 to 9 (A173523 to A173529). Common aspects (recurrences etc.) of these are documented in A173525.
