The candidate is perhaps the first as well with 100 primes known wearing its base 4 mask. Interestingly out of the 212 primes found, 119 are translatable to base 4, and only 93 not.
I have a hunch that the mismatch is not random. Base 4 is an extremely interesting base to analyse. It is the first square base, and resultant on that no prime p has modulo of p1. Generalised cunningham chains in square bases provide longer chains, and I think this is related to the last statement.

I stopped the sieve for n=8001000k at p=9.6T (which is more than optimal) and updated the zip file (22544.zip) in the top post.
Sieving n=1.032M is already in progress...
