COMMENTS

A subsequence of A070694.
Conjecture: the sequence is infinite.
For n=4 and n=9, a(n)*2+1 is also a prime.
The first term greater than 1 such that k^(2^6) + 1 is also prime, is a(148) = 2072005925466, see A335805.  Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Aug 18 2020

EXAMPLE

k=7072833120 is in the sequence because the following are six primes: 7072833121, 7072833120^2+1, k^4+1, k^8+1, k^16+1, k^32+1.
