Hi,

I sent that transaction from Electrum 2.9.3 yesterday. The source has confirmed amount.
https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/tx/d4fb1d1ad81b36992e5da6d9c6a0d9b6857147b3a8853f93f90889cbf64d7a92

First the fee was low, then I increased it to 1.77778 mBTC/kb,
and changed the transaction from RBF to final. It has been pending for 11 hours already,
although for the fee in [0.0017,0.0018] range, https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ estimates
confirmation in 10-240 minutes.

When increasing the fee, I changed the transaction to "final". Maybe I shouldn't have done it?
My reasoning was that since non-RBF transaction has the disadvantage that fee cannot be changed,
and non-RBF is provided as an option, it should have some advantage over RBF, so I
thought it could be faster.

Please help, I'm new in blockchain (started 3 days ago).

Seems your transaction fee is okay I mean it's not too low that the network will not confirm it, but since the network has a huge backlog this time and it currently its 58k it might be the initial reason. And please upgrade your electrum to 3.0 instead of 2.9.3 for future use.
Anyway I accelerate your transaction, now you have to wait until antpool find its new block for several minutes and possible hours before the transaction got confirmed.

Thank you so much for your help bL4nkcode!
I'm looking forward for antpool confirming the block.
