In a discussion on Reddit regarding Tempo and Stellar DEX, a Redditor commented,

“When you want to make a transfer in a corridor Euro – XLM – USD, Tempo is the European Euro-anchor, making the swap from Euro to XLM possible in the Stellar transaction. The liquidity needed in XLM is XLM’s utility and is directly related to it’s price. When we HODL in anchor exchanges we provide part of this liquidity and make the machine run. If we HODL in offline wallets, XLM becomes scarcer, price may go up and the machine may slow down. A matter of finding a balance.”
