I came across
https://mediumformat.com

With Lloyd Chambers & Ming Thein they have reliable sources. It could work.

Because the Innovation cycles of Medium Format are so slow I do not see any reason to switch. The format gain is simply outinnovated by Nikon and Sony and Fuji...

The biggest prae of Medium Format is that you can still impress a group of customers with very expensive gear.

BUT: Yesterday I was clearing up my studio/office and found HUGE prints of meat that I made in 2009 with 12 Megapixels (now 45MP), mediocre light (85% color scale, now 92%) and my AMED Large Format Nikkor (Now Schneider APO Digitar). Prints that show the real thing more than ten times original size.

These prints still make me proud and I could still use them to win customers today. With the D850 & the Schneider APO Digitar and much better light (next light upgrade round the corner) I can have even more technical perfection, but there is next to no market for that. Maybe in NYC or in BERLIN or in HAMBURG or MUNIC, but nowhere near the place I live.
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.
