The most popular programming language used currently to write smart contracts is Solidity [it is based on OOP JavaScript]

List of the major cryptocurrencies (coding languages) are:

Bitcoin (C++), Ethereum (C++), Stratis (C#), Hyperledger (Java), Corda (Java), Credits (Java or JS)

There are multiple aspects to working on blockchain:

1- You want to build your own blockchain (like Ethereum, Bitcoin etc).
2- You want to build a distributed applications (dapp) or smart contract on top of an existing blockchain (Ethereum Ethereum Project is the most popular one currently).
3- You want to build a “distributed ledger”. Hyperledger Fabric (Welcome to Hyperledger Fabric) is the leader in that one.
