NFT is actually pronounced ‘nay-fey-tay’

Let’s get this straight: NFT is pronounced “nay-fey-tay.” That’s all there is to it.

You might have read Corin Faife at the Verge claiming it should be said as “neft” — but they’re wrong. It’s nay-fey-tay. Forever and ever, nay-fey-tay.

I can see where Faife is coming from, I really can. “Neft” is an elegant solution to saying those three letters. As it doesn’t appear NFTs are going anywhere, this pronunciation approach would save us all a lot of time.

But here’s my issue: why should we have an elegant solution for something that’s inherently serpentine and torturous?
