It's the poor man's equivalent of the darknetmarkets subreddit before Reddit dropped the ban hammer. It's like Reddit with more racism.
Voat is a site which hosts aggregated content and discussion forums. According to Wired, Voat is “aesthetically and functionally similar to Reddit.” Like Reddit, Voat is a collection of entries submitted by its registered users to themed categories (called “subverses” on Voat) similar to a bulletin board system. Unlike Reddit, Voat has emphasized looser content restrictions and an ad-revenue sharing program. Voat is written in the C# programming language, while Reddit is written in Python.
