A transaction bundle can become inconsistent if one of its two approving transactions (which were chosen at the time when you initially attached your transaction) are double-spends (or reattachments) of already ...

When showing 1/5 it's sending the first one, 2/5 second one gets sent, etc... You can promote your transaction instantly. In the worst case, you are wasting your computing resources (which isn't really such a "worst case", ...

For that transaction, isPromotable will return false, since it approves one or more transactions that are inconsistent (would be doublespends or reattaches of already confirmed transactions). When you try to promote it, chances are high that the promotion transaction will pick a ...

It may for instance be ending up in a parasite chain or other non-confirmed sidechain. This is a very often the case and of no concern for the general iota network topology. It's not a bug, it's by design!


Taken from the official wallet app: const spamTransfer = [{address: '9'.repeat(81), value: 0, message: '', tag: ''}] iota.api.promoteTransaction(transactionHash, 10, 14, spamTransfer, {interrupt: false, delay: 0}); Documentation is available here.
