What is the significance of the \(n^{2}+1\) conjecture?

The \(n^{2}+1\) conjecture has been unsolved since 1912. It states that there are infinitely many primes of the form \(n^{2}+1\).

Why is this significant/important? Why does it matter whether there are infinitely or finitely many primes of the form \(n^{2}+1\)?
