What is a devnet?

Testnet, short for "test network," is a blockchain environment specifically designed for testing and development purposes. Unlike devnets, testnets are usually open to the public allowing developers and users to test applications within a blockchain network that function and perform very similarly to a live blockchain network deployed on mainnet.
