charles has said that midnight will get it’s security from cardano, already confirmed that it will leverage cardano stake pool infrastructure

but if midnight wants to launch in a decentralised and secure state that’s only part of it - imho the project will also need to take advantage of cardanos token distribution

if you have a token sale there it’s never going to match cardanos security based on token distribution

so i wonder, how will midnight launch? will there be a token sale - or will the genesis block be a copy of the cardano ledger state plus additional $dust for future development, rewards and sustainabiliity

of course - if this was IOHKs the intended route they wouldn’t want to announce this until midnight is launched as to not dramatically impact the market
