> Major companies like Samsung / Facebook have teams working on PoCs.

Samsung has entire teams working on PoCs for just about anything. Including a lot of terrible ideas that end up in the trash (I personally worked on some of them :)

Facebook wanting to enter payments and money transfers through Whatsapp makes a lot of sense. But the fact it might be backed by some internal and centralized stablecoin is completely irrelevant to end-users.
