@education I know PCI. They do great work, but their system does not break the power of the publishers.
PCI only review pre-prints (which is just a small part of the submitted papers) and these papers are still send to journals to assess their importance.
Grassroots reviews are made after publication. That has the advantage that then the studies are understood much better and can be reviewed by people who worked with it.
