Crypto Dashboard

This crypto dashboard is a React and Redux SPA application that queries data from various cryptocurrency APIs and displays that data in an easy-to-read and search format. This was a personal front-end-only project that I did in order to gain more experience using Redux Toolkit to manage data gathered from API fetches.
