# 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 $$n^{2}+1$$?
