Do you know the largest prime for which every prime smaller then this is known?
In other words: What is the largest prime if you have a complete list of primes?

That's a difficult question to answer.

Please see https://primes.utm.edu/notes/faq/LongestList.html for an explanation.

If you want to see a list of the 50 million smallest primes, it's here: https://primes.utm.edu/lists/small/millions/.

Want more? Supposedly this links to the first 37 billion primes. I haven't counted. http://www.primos.mat.br/indexen.html

Lastly, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_prime_numbers, the Goldbach Conjecture verification project has computed all primes below 4*10^18. That's nearly 10^17 primes, but they were only computed, and not stored.

My lucky number is 75898524288+1
