Gerardo Alton Ortega CEO/Chairman of Vital Digital LLC announced that he has not forgotten why Digi-cards are here today. "Digi-cards started 5 years ago as the (Digimusicard) when I was trying to find a way to sell albums instead of .99 cent songs when I was a record industry Executive and artist Agent. I knew digital was going to be big (eventually) but I also knew tangible products would not completely disappear. If one could have both in one easy to carry product . that is when it all started. It all started because of music". Digi-cards are going to give back to music by launching a worldwide marketing campaign targeting recording artists.
