I sent some bitcoin to another adress, i paid regular fee and it already more than 28 hours that its not confirmed. Can I do anything? Why does it need that much time to confirm?
On this page (https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/#delay) there was written like 19 hours waiting time. But nothing happened.

Here is my transaction



There is not mutch you can do. The easiest solution would be to wait until the transaction confirms.

Your transaction is not eligible for Replace-By-Fee. With RBF it's possible to replace a transaction by nearly the same transaction just with increased fee. To indicate RBF the sequence of one of the inputs needs to be lower than MAX_INT - 1 (in dec: 4294967295 - 1 or in hex: 0xFFFFFFFF - 1). You can check that for your transaction here.

Since you mentioned that the transaction is to an other address of yours, you could try Child-Pays-For-Parent. This works by spending the unconfirmed transaction output in a new child transaction with much higher fees to pay for the parent transaction and its self. This depends on your wallet software.

Here would be a guide for Electrum.

I the end it comes all down to the patience you have. Your transaction will confirm eventually. I would not advice somebody without technical expertise to experiment with different wallets and export/import private keys, just because the transaction does not confirm.

Fee estimation is still a difficult topic, especially in times with many transactions waiting to be confirmed. It's nearly impossible to say that a transaction will confirm in the next 19 hours.
