I opened a LN channel 2 days ago, and the Tx is stuck because I accidentally set the fees too low.
I can see in Mempool that this is an RBF enabled Tx. Is there a way that I can use RBF to bump up the fee? I don’t see where I have the ability to do that using the Umbrel Bitcoin wallet.
Thanks in advance…
Also looking for this answer!
I got an answer via Twitter DM:
“You can do it with the Ride The Lightning app.
Go to RTL > Lightning > Peers / Channels > Pending open > three dot menu of the channel to bump > Bump fees”
There are instructions there, but you will also need to look up the index of the stuck TX’s change address. It was 0 in my case.
Make sure you bump the fee towards the top of the going rate. Transaction volume and fees and are both very high right now.
Many thanks! Worked just great!
I tried this option but I cannot see it reflected in the mempool
