The question in the title really says it all...

I was wondering, what relies on the Goldbach conjecture being true? What would happen if it was proven correct?

1. Nothing.
2. It would become the Goldbach Theorem.
3. A lot of math guys would have to find some other way to spend their time.

He would become a famous mathematician. He might even win the fields medal.

If he had $5.00 in his pocket, he could get some coffee at any Starbucks.
