Bump Fee Amount?

I sent some Bitcoin from ThunderHub to a wallet and it appears my fee of 6 Sats was a little, OK a lot, low… 23 hours and counting! Is there a way to bump the fee to speed up the transaction?

Hi @TAC you may want to confirm on mempool.space whether this transaction has RBF flags or not.

After SSHing into your node, you can run the following command with your transaction info to bump the fee

sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app compose lightning exec lnd lncli wallet bumpfee --sat_per_byte <number of new sats> <txid>:<index point> (index point may be 0 or 1)

RBF flag is lined out. I entered the command with the number of new sats set to 9 and saw some sats move out of my Lightning Node Bitcoin wallet but the transaction isn’t moving the right direction. :frowning: BTW the transaction ID is: 87ff415080cdf5987ade07746a6bcb9838da15cf9329e7390ed1ed6a736a377d.

@smolgrrr What happens if the transaction never gets confirmed, is the transaction just canceled and the BTC ends up in the original wallet?

The mempool says this should be confirmed in an hour or so!

It does seem that you were able to bump it with a CPFP transaction which is great.

@smolgrrr I’m looking at 45 confirmations! Thanks for your help! The ~$5 has shown up in my wallet, and more importantly, the 500,000+ Sats that were stuck ‘Pending’ in my Lightning Node now appear to be ‘Available’ for withdrawal.
Thanks again!

I’m constantly amazed by how awesome and helpful this community is…I just encountered the same issue and was able to bump using Terminal commands. Thank you!
