It looks like Hexadecimal to me. However the actual encryption may not be just the hex. The first 4 hex numbers equates to 205 20 110 129. The actual encryption may involve converting then applying an algorithm . The fact that it is in hexadeciaml means nothing. IT is the actual data held in the hexadecimal which is important. For example i could write a simple line like

bdgft

These are just letters but if i apply an algorithm then i can form meaningfukl data.

Anyway i have no exact idea what form of encryption this is. It could be a caesar cypher if converted to decimal. You would have to know a key however to decrypt
