Why do messages sometimes arrive out of order? What does this mean for future applications like HoloFuel where transaction order matters?

Though occasionally the initial order of signals messages may appear out of order, they always resolve to the correct order after they have been gossiped with the DHT, usually within 3-7 minutes currently. Signals is our method of supporting real time messaging on a fully distributed app without verification feedback. The gossipping of messages following that verifies and shares all messages via the Elemental Chat DHT.
