You don't understand the issue, yes, you receive transactions in an "order", but you have to uphold to ACID constraints, and the very idea of simultaneity breaks linearizability. you need to write data in a form of order, and this order have to prove the order of operations. Not dictate it, prove it. if one of the transactions succeeds and someone loses big bucks because he was not "chosen" first, you have not written a fair concensus and linearization

— When I say you may advocate your decisions facing a court, it is quite literal if you work for a multinaional financial institution or if you make software used by them

— Simultaneity must be, like in nature, an impossibility

— To quote Joe Armstrong (may he rest in peace): "I am a physicist at heart, as such I must write computer systems that respect the laws of physics"
