"It is influenced mainly by C++, a little from Python and early-on from JavaScript. The syntax and OOP concepts are from C++.  Solidity’s modifiers, multiple inheritance, C3 linearization and the super keyword are influences from Python. Function-level scoping and var keyword were JavaScript influences early-on but those have been reduced since v0.4.0."
