VTC Vertcoin wallet passphrase lost need help
no. You can't use the wallet.dat file directly. You need to download bitcoin2john.py (from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/magnum...in2john.py) and run it with python 2.7 (as I already told you above):

python bitcoin2john.py wallet.dat

the output of this python script execution is the "hash" that must be provided to hashcat.
You should save the output of the command above to a file called hash.txt (make sure that it doesn't contain any file names, the hash should be similar to the one mentioned here: https://hashcat.net/wiki/example_hashes , search for -m 11300)

after that you should run your tests like this:
hashcat -m 11300 -a 0 -w 3 hash.txt dict.txt

The file dict.txt should contain the password of your test wallet (for which you know the password).
