COMMENTS

There are only three possible sequences of this kind: one starting from 3 (A302932), another from 4 (this sequence) and another from 10 (A302933).
Next term has 97 digits.  Giovanni Resta, Jun 06 2018

EXAMPLE

We start from 4: 1/4 = 0.25. At the beginning we have 2 instead of 4 as first decimal digit but the second term will fix it.
In fact the next integer is 5 and 1/4 + 1/5 = 0.45 and so on.
The sum is 0.4 5 316 617610 803725588973 ...


MAPLE

P:=proc(q) local a, b, d, n; a:=1/4; b:=ilog10(1/a)+1; d:=1/a; print(d);
for n from 1 to q do if trunc(evalf(a+1/n, 100)*10^(b+ilog10(n)+1))=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n then b:=b+ilog10(n)+1; d:=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n; a:=a+1/n; print(n); fi; od; end: P(10^20);
