Yes, there is both a CPU and GPU: HowTo_run_PoW_Miner
However given the GPU is much much faster for PoW mining... CPU users encouraged to PoP mine instead of PoW mine.
What algorithm do you use?
vBlake, which is a custom version of BLAKE2b we created.
Is it ASIC resistant?
Is is intentionally not ASIC resistant (although there are not any ASICs yet since it's a new algorithm).
