Back end, or no back end?

Back end, or no back end?

I am developing an app for popular consumption.
If best case scenario, someone wanted to buy the app from me, does the value come from the user database contained in the back end server, or do you think it doesn't matter if a backend is not created?

Your thoughts and experience would be highly appreciated.

That really depends on your app. Usually the value will come from how much money the app is making!

If your database is huge it could have some value but it would have to be significant.
