In financial services today, it seems everyone is interested in how blockchain can be used. Diana Adachi's one of the people making it happen.

After the distributed ledger technology was mostly regarded as the "technology behind Bitcoin," banks are warming up to blockchain to improve more mainstream activities, such as cross-border payments and mobile transactions.

While the true benefits of blockchain and its best uses may not be known for years, Adachi's management style suggests there's nothing left to chance; nothing left to develop on its own without careful nurturing.

"A vision without a plan is a hallucination,” said Adachi, quoting Will Rogers. "This belief is the foundation of my ability to execute and get to 'end of job.'"
