I have a Core wallet but forgot my passphrase how do i recover my passphrase
u can not ! :(
i can recommend a service that can 'help' you recover
(only if you know parts of the password or have very good leads what it could be)

I dont remember any words from the passphrase
sorry - bad news - not sure how to help

encryption is encryption - there is no recovery (as u should never trust a 3rd party service with encryption keys)
for the future i recommend
KeePassX
https://www.keepassx.org
Open Source Password Manager

i remember few words from the passphrase, so further what i should do
you could contact
Dave @
https://walletrecoveryservices.com
he is 100% trusted (by me)
i used him myself before and recommended him to many others with great results !
(remember he can not bruteforce your password, can only run software to figure out with your info what it 'could' be !)

Please understand, that anybody can't help you to remember password. Some, guys with a powerful computing resources (like google) can try to brute-force, but this may take a years. Maybe 12dsh is not a big price for it...

At this point it seems all you can do is go away and read about encryption, dash security and best practices for keeping your passphrase safe. This lesson has cost you 12 dash so make the most of the learning opportunity and be thankful that it didn't cost you a lot more.

Sorry for your loss man. I am in the same boat and will lose 115 dash and that = $20,000 @ this moment.

"be your own bank"
is a great keyword - but it brings the responsibility of being that "own bank"
you are in cgharge of your encryption keys / passwords,... and the likes
i am sorry to hear that dave can not help you

Safety one on one
- use a password manager !! KeePassX (OpenSource and highly recommended)
- use a VPN (safety first)
- secure your wallet.dat files and password manager file on MULTIPLE devices
- use a Hardware Wallet
- ....

Hi,

I recovered last week a wallet.dat file for a guy. In 2013 he buy's 6 bitcoins.
A friend told him to change his password phrase. In 2018 he want to sell it, he didn't knows it anymore.
So, he give the wallet.dat file to me, told me, if I recover it, 1 Bitcoin is for me.
Last week I recovered it, with a little bit help from him, he give me some keywords what maybe is used.

takes me 5 day's, then I recovered the password.
So, it's possible if you know some of the words that is being used.
