Can you give us some context here?

Why do you need it decrypted?

Where did you come across this sample?

Is this a homework assignment?

A friend gave it to me.

Okay where did he get it? And why do you want it decrypted?

I don't know where he got it.
He just said if I can decrypt but didn't give me any clues.

What have you learned so far?

It looks like binary, I tried the ASCII chart but gave me more numbers,
it could be ternary or another base.

I did a google search on the first three bytes and got this crazy Facebook account

It doesn't look like English, and my friend is white.

There are others online. I suspect it’s just ascii or ascii in reverse.

The google search says folks try to talk Binary online.

I got a string of numbers
43 49 43 41 44 41 20 33 33 30 31

Well have fun with it. There’s nothing more we can do.

Perhaps if you "decode" via ASCII again the result will make some kind of sense to you (if not then try google what you find).

I got this in the second layer

it could be ternary or another base.
Possible, but since the only digits present are 0 and 1, it's most likely binary and not ternary or some other base.

I got this in the second layer

00110100 00110011 00100000 00110100 00111001 00100000 00110100 00110011 00100000 00110100 00110001 00100000 00110100 00110100 00100000 00110100 00110001 00100000 00110010 00110000 00100000 00110011 00110011 00100000 00110011 00110011 00100000 00110011 00110000 00100000 00110011 00110001

Groups 3,6,9,12... are encoded directly in ASCII, 00100000=(20h), the Space character in the above string.
Other groups are paired such that they are the ASCII encoding of the Hex digits of an ASCII character. The first character is:
00110100 > ASCII '4'
00110011 > ASCII '3'
= 43h
= 'C' in ASCII
Then followed by a Space. (00100000 > 20h)

If you represent the Space character as "_" the message reads: C_AI_C_A_D_A__3_3_0_1 (note the two spaces before the first "3")

Edit: fixed second character in decode: was 'A' should be 'I'.
