I am using LND (most recent version 0.6.1-beta) and I have a lot of pending channels in state pending_open_channels which are stuck for many days (perhaps because of low fee and full mempool) so I want to reset those transactions from my LND/bitcoind or just increase a fee so that could be mined and the channel open.

What options do I have? Can I just delete/reset all pending channels somehow? Or wait or what.

Many thanks for your attention and ideas.


Bitcoind v0.18 was unable to broadcasst my channel transactions because of bug in LND. This error has been found in lnd log:

Second argument must be numeric (maxfeerate) and no longer supports a boolean. To allow a transaction with high fees, set maxfeerate to 0.


I have downgraded bitcoind and the stuck transactions moved.
