Importing Dependencies

We will start by importing the necessary dependencies needed for our PariBox component.
The dependencies that will be utilized are as follows:
import { useConnection } from "@solana/wallet-adapter-react";
import { FC, useState } from "react";
import {
} from "@hxronetwork/parimutuelsdk";
import { useEffect } from "react";
import { PariConfig } from "./Config";
With these dependencies in place, we are now ready to start building our PariBox component.
Before diving in, let's first prepare a few essential elements under our imports that will be utilized later on:
  1. 1.
    Create a PariObj interface to store the contest information, including the Long and Short Pools' amounts, odds, and pubkey.
interface PariObj {
longPool: any; // This is how much money is in the Long Pool of the contest
shortPool: any; // This is how much money is in the Short Pool of the contest
longOdds: string; // This is the weighted odds of the Long Pool
shortOdds: string; // This is the weighted odds of the Short Pool
pubkey: string; // This is the contest pubkey
}Next, create a constant named TimeInterval to store various time intervals for ease of use.
  1. 2.
    Create a constant named TimeInterval to store various time intervals for ease of use.
const TimeInterval = [
interval: '1M',
seconds: 60,
title: "1 MINUTE",
interval: '5M',
seconds: 300,
title: "5 MINUTE",
interval: '15M',
seconds: 900,
title: "15 MINUTE",
interval: '1H',
seconds: 3600,
title: "1 HOUR",
interval: '1D',
seconds: 86400,
title: "1 DAY",

Setting up our component

  1. 1.
    Start by creating a functional component called PariBox. It will take in a prop called time.
export const PariBox: FC<{ time: string }> = (props) => {
const { time } = props;
  1. 2.
    Next, filter the TimeInterval array to find the object that matches the time prop passed in.
const selectedTime = TimeInterval.filter((data) => data.interval === time);
  1. 3.
    Extract the seconds and title properties from the selected object.
const timeSeconds = selectedTime[0].seconds
const timeTitle = selectedTime[0].title
  1. 4.
    Define a state variable to store the PariObj data. The useState hook is used to manage this state in the function component.
const [pariObj, setPariObj] = useState<PariObj>();
  1. 5.
    Define a state variable to store the countDownTime data. The useState hook is used to manage this state in the function component.
const [countDownTime, setCountDownTime] = useState<string>("");
  1. 6.
    Create a constant config that holds the configuration values imported from the Config.tsx file
const { config } = PariConfig;
  1. 7.
    Create constant **connection** , which handles the connection to Solana depending on the user's wallet, and instantiate a new ParimutuelWeb3 object with config and connection as parameters.
const { connection } = useConnection();
const parimutuelWeb3 = new ParimutuelWeb3(config, connection);
  1. 8.
    Define the marketPair with **MarketPairEnum** to select the market that we want to get the contests from. For markets , use the **getMarketPubkeys** method to retrieve all of the Pubkeys of the specified market/s, and create a marketsByTime variable that filters the markets based on whether the duration is the same as timeSeconds value so that we get only the contests from the desired time interval.
// To get only the BTC-USD Market Contests
const marketPair = MarketPairEnum.BTCUSD;
const markets = getMarketPubkeys(config, marketPair);
const marketsByTime = markets.filter(
(market) => market.duration === timeSeconds

Getting contest data

  1. 1.
    Use the useEffect hook to run a specific effect when the component is rendered. In this case, the effect will fetch data about the contest and set it in the pariObj state.
useEffect(() => {
const getPariData = async () => {
// make sure that we don't exceed the localStorage 10MB capacity when
// calling our data
// Fetch contest data and set it in the pariObj state
}, []);

Retrieving contests

  1. 2.
    Use the parimutuelWeb3.getParimutuels method to retrieve the parimutuel data from the parimutuels array marketsByTerm , and retrieve the duration of the selected parimutuel market.
const parimutuels = await parimutuelWeb3.getParimutuels(marketsByTime);
const duration = marketsByTime[0].duration;
  1. 3.
    Use the parimutuelWeb3.getMarkets method to retrieve the market data.
const getMarkets = await parimutuelWeb3.getMarkets(market)
  1. 4.
    To retrieve only the next-in-line contests, filter the parimutuels array to find the parimutuel accounts that match the conditions.
const pari_markets = parimutuels.filter(
(account) => > && < + duration * 1000

Extracting data from contests

  • Assigning data to variables:
// Assign active long and active short pools and divide them by USDC
// decimal size to get the real amount
let longPool: any =
(pari_markets[0].info.parimutuel.activeLongPositions.toNumber() /
let shortPool: any =
(pari_markets[0].info.parimutuel.activeShortPositions.toNumber() /
// Calculate the odds for long and short pools with the
// calculateNetOdds(side, totalPool, rake) method from the SDK
// by passing it in the respective pool side, total pool size,
// and the rake which is the fee that the Parimutuel protocol takes which is 3%
const longOdds = calculateNetOdd(longPool, longPool + shortPool, 0.03);
const shortOdds = calculateNetOdd(shortPool, longPool + shortPool, 0.03);
// Get the public key of the selected parimutuel contract and turn it
// into a string
const pubkey = pari_markets[0].pubkey.toString();
// Get the lock time of the selected parimutuel contract
const locksTime =
// Round the values of long and short pools to 2 decimal places
longPool = longPool.toFixed(2)
shortPool = shortPool.toFixed(2)
// Now we can update our contest by setting the state of our pariObj
// object with this data
setPariObj({ longPool, shortPool, longOdds, shortOdds, pubkey });
  • Formatting countdown timer to display:
// We declare a variable formattedTime and initialize it with "00:00:00".
var formattedTime = "00:00:00";
// Next, we have an if statement that checks if locksTime is truthy.
if (locksTime) {
//If locksTime is truthy, we calculate the difference between locksTime
// and the current time in milliseconds. We store this difference in the
// timeDiff variable.
const currentTime = new Date().getTime();
const timeDiff = locksTime - currentTime;
// We then use the Math.floor method to calculate the number of hours,
// minutes, and seconds from timeDiff.
const hours = Math.floor(timeDiff / (1000 * 60 * 60));
const minutes = Math.floor((timeDiff % (1000 * 60 * 60)) / (1000 * 60));
const seconds = Math.floor((timeDiff % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);
// Next, we use template literals to format hours, minutes, and seconds
// into a string that has the format "hh:mm:ss". If hours, minutes, or
// seconds is less than 10, we add a leading "0".
formattedTime = `${hours < 10 ? "0" + hours : hours}:${minutes < 10 ? "0" + minutes : minutes
}:${seconds < 10 ? "0" + seconds : seconds}`;
// Finally, we can setCountDownTime with formattedTime as its argument.
Here, we can close our getPariStats() function.

Calling our data

To start a recurring function call, use the setInterval() function. The setInterval() function takes two parameters: the first parameter is the function that you want to call repeatedly, and the second parameter is the interval in milliseconds.
Here, we want to call the getPariData() function every second, so the interval is set to 1000 milliseconds or 1 second.
const intervalId = setInterval(() => getPariData(), 1000);
To avoid memory leaks, it's important to clean up any recurring functions when the component that started it unmounts. To do this, return a function that calls clearInterval() and pass in the intervalId.
return () => clearInterval(intervalId);
}, []);
Now, we have a function that updates our data every second until the component unmounts and the interval is cleared.

Rendering Our Data

Let's build the UI of our Pari Box component.
return (
// Render contents here
To make it easier, here is the code you can copy and paste inside of return:
return (
<div style={{
padding: 10,
border: "1px solid white",
borderRadius: "10px",
boxSizing: "border-box",
width: "250px",
alignItems: "center",
<h1 style={{fontWeight: 'bold', fontSize:'30px', marginBottom:'10px'}}>{timeTitle}</h1>
display: "flex",
flexDirection: "row",
justifyContent: "space-between",
alignItems: "center",
display: "flex",
flexDirection: "column",
alignItems: "flex-start",
marginRight: "5px",
<p style={{ color: "white" }}>Long Pool:</p>
<p style={{ color: "white" }}>Short Pool:</p>
<p style={{ color: "white" }}>Long Odds:</p>
<p style={{ color: "white" }}>Short Odds:</p>
<p style={{ color: "white" }}>Starts In:</p>
display: "flex",
flexDirection: "column",
alignItems: "flex-end",
marginLeft: "5px",
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}></p>
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}>
{pariObj ? pariObj.longPool : "0"}
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}>
{pariObj ? pariObj.shortPool : "0"}
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}>
{pariObj ? pariObj.longOdds : "0"}
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}>
{pariObj ? pariObj.shortOdds : "0"}
<p style={{ color: "white", fontWeight: "bold" }}>{countDownTime}</p>
Here is where we are going to be using the PlacePositionBox.tsx component
<div style={{marginTop:'20px'}}>
<PlacePositionBox pubkey={pariObj? pariObj.pubkey : 'Loading'}/>

Now, let's test it!

  1. 1.
    Go to src/view/home.tsx and import PariBox.tsx
  2. 2.
    Import the PariBox component
//Pari Box
import { PariBox } from '../../components/PariBox';
  1. 3.
    Use the PariBox component inside of the HomeView return and pass in ‘1M’ as the time prop to get the 1-minute market contests for BTC-USD.
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'1M'} /></div>


Use the following code to display (in a responsive way) the latest contests for all the time intervals available:
<div className="text-center" style={{ alignContent: 'center' }}>
<div className="flex flex-col items-center justify-between md:flex-row">
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'1M'} /></div>
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'5M'} /></div>
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'15M'} /></div>
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'1H'} /></div>
<div className="mx-5 my-5 mb-5 md:mb-0 md:mb-0"><PariBox time={'1D'} /></div>
The output should look similar to this:
