If you didn't update your wallet and you have funds blocked in Stratis Electrum Wallet , here are the steps  to follow to recover them.Thanks to Dev0tion here are the steps that you need to follow :

If you want to get funds out of Electrum you need to follow these steps:

  • (0) I had to install Electrum again, and then recovered the old Wallets by adding Seed data
  • (1) Recover private keys in Electrum Wallet. Go to Wallet -> Private Keys -> Export Enter password Save the .CSV file somewhere on your computer where you can find it. Make sure nobody reads/has access to this file because your private keys are on there
  • (2) Clean installation of Stratis-QT 2.0.0.5: https://github.com/stratisproject/stratisX/releases/tag/v2.0.0.5 If previously installed, make clean by: Go to %appdata%/Stratis and delete everything except the file called "wallet.dat"
  • (3) Add stratis.conf in the %appdata%/Stratis directory. In this conf file add the nodes that you find for /Stratis:2.0.0.5/ on https://chainz.cryptoid.info/strat/#!network Make sure QT-wallet starts to sync with the network
  • (4) Import private keys from step-1 Open the CSV files you saved from Electrum earlier. You will see that this contains two colums: address and private key. The private keys is what you need. In Qt, go to Help -> Debug Window -> Console In the terminal window type: importprivkey "private key" and repeat that step for every private key in the files. After you've done all the addresses and Qt is completely synced, you should see all funds in Qt.
  • (5) Send recovered funds to a new wallet on Stratis-Core https://github.com/stratisproject/stratisX/releases/tag/v2.0.0.5

 

 Wait your wallet to be 100% sync and your balance will be OK.
