COMMENTS

Here, i is the imaginary unit sqrt(1) and e is the Euler number.
The continued fraction of which this is the real part converges to one of the two solutions of the equation z * (e + z) = i. It is also the unique attractor of the complex mapping M(z) = i/(e + z). The other solution of the equation is an invariant point of M(z), but not its attractor. The imaginary part of this complex constant is in A263209.
Note also that when e and i are exchanged, the resulting continued fraction e/(i + e/(i + e/(...))) does not converge, and the corresponding mapping has no attractor.
