Javascript... really???

The wrong tool for the job is the best I can say.

In my opiniom, measuring what is the best language by using the number of job offers or its popularity is not a good way to go.

The merit for the best language to use should be on the technical side, its concurrency and parallel model, and how fault tolerant it is(thinking Elixir here).

And despite not being a Golang fan, I would put it on the top of the easiest languages to learn.

Well I don't know Solidity, so no comment on it, but in my opinion the winner should be one of, without order of preference, Rust, Golang, Python or even Elixir/Erlang(not evaluated in this article).
