Soon after the DeFi Swap launch, u/Mla2 have pointed out that he believes (but could be wrong) that the multiple stakes of CRO does not provide a booster of the next factor, wich is what we may understand at first view.
For example, by staking 5.000 CRO then 5.000 CRO, your new factor then becomes ((5000 \* 2,5)+(2,5 \* 5000))/(5000+5000) = 2,5.
In other words your extra stake does nothing at all.

Since this was not enought documented, i have chosen to not take the risk, and when i wanted to get to next tier of booster, i simply abandonned my first wallet, and started staking in a new one with a bigger booster with one single CRO stake.
Today, a user on Telegram, have experienced exactly this issue.
As you can see, the website still shows the total staked CRO as 100.000 +
Using this number with the calculator displays the potential earning with 6x Booster, while the real booster is only about 2.97x in this case. This completely confirms u/Mla2 's thoughts.
I believe this is a serious issue, a 4 years stake is not a joke, the website should warn about this.
Thanks to u/Mla2 again for his comment and i hope CDC team will work on this asap, before more investors fall into the same trap.
As mentioned in the comments, CDC added the details about this calculation to the FAQ:
