Continuing our series of Q&A sessions with the remarkable winners of the Rising Women in Crypto Power List, we recently had the opportunity to connect with Lianna Adams.

Dive into our quick Q&A session to learn more about this incredible achiever!

Reflecting on your recognition on the Rising Women in Crypto Power List, what's one moment recently that made you go, "Wow, I'm really making a mark in this crypto journey"?

The moment I found out that I was selected to be on the Rising Women in Crypto Power List was that moment! And what came after from my peers and the community was very heartwarming and truly humbling. It can be hard to see what impact you're really making in the lives around you when you're just trying to better serve humanity.

What's one everyday skill you think has been your secret weapon in dealing with the challenges of the crypto world?

Being able to take things one day at a time and also to be able to see a different perspective in everything.

If you weren't involved in crypto, what job or career would you be interested in?

I have been lucky to be able to incorporate what I'd like to do into my work in crypto which is coaching, philanthropy and humanitarian work... Serving humanity and the environment seems to be my default setting no matter what I do. I am passionate about making this world a better place and the only way I know.

What's one piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you first jumped into the crypto space?

"Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time." I was and maybe still am pretty idealistic.

How do you maintain your well-being?

I meditate and I am a lot better at making sure I have time for myself creating art or doing nothing at all.

Who/what inspires you?

I am inspired by the resilience and the kindness of people that emerges from the adversities they go through. Everything about life around me inspires me. Being able to see the beauty through the darkness of life inspires me. When I see people finally seeing themselves and being comfortable in their own skin inspires me.

How do you stay informed and adapt to emerging trends and technologies within the industry?

I stay informed through reading news but also I tend to go into little rabbit holes to get a full idea or concept of the emerging trends and technologies. I also have friends to thank in terms of sharing their knowledge or pieces of news I may have missed. And then I start thinking or imagining about how things would look like in practice.

Looking ahead, what are your goals and aspirations, both personally and in your contributions to the crypto space?

I'd love to continue to cultivate a humanity-first culture in this space and beyond.  And also to empower people to leave a long-lasting positive impact in their lives and in the world. To live more authentically with no judgements. When that happens, I think there will be less 'bad press' about the crypto space because people just want the best for humankind;  to help give the underrepresented and underserved communities a voice.
