Remember that when an update happens, it's likely that replays on raids you or the person that attacked you won't be available because that data was wiped out. So if things that are recent don't last long, the stuff you did a while back most likely won't stay in the company's database for the users to access.
    I proposed a standalone app like a museum where i can access my previous versions after i input my info it could be called the COC museum

    You may be correct, but I myself doudt they have that much history data. All indications are they have a database engine as the back-end. Dbs do not have infinite transactional history space. Typically, you only need to keep transaction history since the last full db backup. Then you can restore the db via a db restore, followed by applying transactional records.

    It is a game, not a financial system. I very strongly doubt if they apply much more time and cost for archiving transaction history then what is only absolutely neccessary for a game,
