Since my Mac crashed after I accidentally pulled the plug, Protoshare QT sends me the following message: "ProtoShares-Qt quit unexpectedly."
I did a clean uninstall with Mackeeper and reinstalled, but nothing changed.
Also I have no idea where the actual wallet.dat file is located.  Aren't they usually to be found in the library's Application Support?  At least I could throw away the wallet.dat file and see if it works with a new file.  Anyone can help?

For mac, your wallet.dat is located at  ~/Library/Application Support/Protoshares/
Does the QT can open itself? There is a backup wallet option in "File" tab. And you can try "-rescan" in the Debug Window->Console.
If the QT can't be opened, you may need to backup the wallet file, then delete the Protoshares folder in Application Support and try reopen the QT.

This is what I expected where the wallet.dat file should be located.  But even before the crash, I wasn't able to see the wallet file in the application support folder.  Out of curiosity, I created a new user in the mac login option and tried to run protoshares there.  There it worked fine and didn't quit, but even there I cannot find the wallet.dat file in the application support folder.  Even if protoshares was to worked fine, I wouldn't feel comfortable to have value stored in the wallet.dat file not knowing where in my computer it is located.

I was looking for my wallet.dat file and found it in ~/Users/User/.protoshares

Make sure your hidden files and folders are visible to be able to see it.
