In the announcement, the Poloniex team reveals that the two tokens were selected for listing after meeting pre-determined criteria across multiple categories.

After reviewing across five broad categories — fundamentals, technology, people, business model, and market dynamics — we selected these two projects based on the opportunity they present for Poloniex customers.

Both tokens will be available for trading on August 22nd at 16:00 UTC, with BTC, ETH, and USDT trading pairs planned at launch. Deposits and withdrawal are currently live.

This news comes just a week since Poloniex added Status (SNT), a mobile operating system for Ethereum, and Kyber Network (KNC), a decentralized exchange protocol, to its trading platform.

BAT and LOOM are currently ranked 37th and 98th, respectively, in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
