Let's start guessing what the next prime will be like with the Fermat prime pool.

In the Fermat prime pool, people express their bids as b values (the b in b^(2^n)+1).

Here we want to guess for the next prime that eliminates any of the five remaining multipliers in the Sierpiński problem, I presume.

Should we state our guess as the value of the exponent n in the expression

k·2^n + 1,

or should we give the number of decimal digits?

Date is another possibility, e.g., "We'll find the next prime in 2023."

Also, bear in mind that we're currently in the middle of a long double check of prior work, with much lower chances of finding a prime. While the numbers themselves are smaller (which increases chances), since the numbers have already been checked once, our chance of finding a prime is approximately 30 times lower than it normally would be.

Even without the double check, there were nine years between the discoveries of the last 2 primes. The gap between the 2 largest primes is pretty large: n=13M and n=31M.

I thought about it while I was participating in original SoB and my opinion was:
1. Next k would be 24737 or 55459 (but not 10223 because I did not know that it was PrimeGrid's part of search)
2. I expected it in the short period of time (n<2^25)

Now my expectation is:
1. One of these 2 k's also
2. n<2^26 (Maybe in 2024?)

It may be a matter of taste, but I find it uninteresting to bet on which k will be eliminated next (I was about to write "that is pure lottery", but gambling on the size of the next SoB prime is a lottery as well, I guess).

My guess for the exponent (of 2) of the next SoB prime shall be:

n = 17.8 M

that is k · 2^{17,800,000} + 1 for some k in { 21181; 22699; 24737; 55459; 67607 }.

I know I will win, and then Michael Goetz can predict when the leading edge will be near n = 17.8 M.

You mean the prime will be (just) below 2^(2^26), then what we usually call n (the n in k·2^n + 1) will be close to 2^26 = 67 million?

n Just below 67000000. So I think. And 17.8 million range already passed or I mistake something?

You are right! My guess was meaningless :-(

The double-check is currently near n = 25 M according to stats_sob_llr, and the double check will end near n = 31.6 M.

I will come up with a meaningful guess at another time (I guess I committed hubris with the style in my post where I made the silly guess).

Nothing above 31M needs to be double checked. The 31M range was always PrimeGrid's, so the part that's done is fully double checked already.

The double check ends at n=30,999,908.

The guess should be stated as the exponent that will eliminate the next k. I am personally betting on the range from 3700097 to 37911100.
