I made a mistake 10 days ago when I sent some bitcoin from my wallet to another one. The problem is, because this transaction was my first one, I set the transaction fee to the bare minimum. You can guess, that I did not see my BTC since then.

According to blockchain.com, the transaction has failed, and my address has all the BTC that I wanted to sent. So far so good, but in the wallet (Atomic Wallet), my balance is near 0. I asked the support, but I didn't get any useful information, just to wait... as I said, it happened 10 days ago. Next, I created a new wallet in Trust Wallet, add the 12 phrase seed which I get from Atomic, hoping, that its only an Atomic bug but... Trust showed near 0 balance too.

So here is my question: how can I get back my BTC from the blockhain universe? I read something about Replace By Fee and Child Pays For Parent methods, but I'm not sure that these can help me. Or am I wrong?

The transaction.
