"work out the kinks" "The down side of this, mainly, is that it’s a little bit complicated. I just thought of this, so I haven’t worked out the kinks, and I hope people will discuss it and perhaps come up with some cleaner solutions." What does "so I haven’t worked out the kinks" mean here?

Basically, Phil Galfond is saying that his idea is not perfect, but with a little more thought he could solve the small problem areas (kinks). Kind of like "debugging" an idea. The image of "work out the kinks" is when you pick up a rope or cable that hasn't been wound up properly. It will have twists and bends (kinks), stopping it from lying straight. With a little untwisting, you work the kinks out of the rope or cable.
