r00t was added as an upgrade option on July 20, 2018, following the suspension of the Ub3r upgrade. It was the final upgrade that a member could get for their account and was purchasable for $50 in cryptocurrency, provided the user already had L33t.
The upgrade was originally added in 2018 and was intended to replace Ub3r. It was discontinued and removed on March 27, 2019, following a data loss. Members who had r00t were moved to the Ub3r user group.
